Best trail that I know of in the area! The trail itself is more challenging than others, which I appreciate, and the views are amazing!

Super short, great for little kids, cool water fall to see. Great to see if you are just site seeing around Ouray

Great views. Can be tricky with loose rock and off camber sections. Worth the time.

It’s $5 to get in. Pretty but nothing too exciting.

Great trail. Scenic and a good trail for your first one.

on Corkscrew Gulch

Easy driving trail. Several places to pass. Maybe one moderate area near top but nothing crazy. I like doing this trail in the evening, great sunsets make for amazing pictures.

Went early and avoided tourist traffic. Easy 2wd until the last ¼ and hen aired down and put in 4 hi most of the time. A few spots needed 4 low and we stayed in low most of the way down during the steep part. Great hiking and views at the top. Next time we are there we’ll try some of the basins to the south of the trail. Stock Sahara, 32 AT no lift.

Cruises up the first chunk to the bathrooms. Amazing views, not too crowded. All types of vehicles including a mountain biker crushing it uphill. Understandable why this is a popular trail. Continued to California Gulch onto animus forks. It got pretty busy after that.

Great trip with great photo ops. Ridgeway to telluride.

Did this trail in my Jeep from the West side - starting off of 550. Talking to people who came up from Lake City and looking over the map, this route is much steeper but a lot of fun. A couple of off camber shelf stretches that were a little hair raising but not that many people till the top. Great drive, well worth it

Entered from Lake City. Best park of the trail was the high altitude and breathtaking vistas. Seemed like a lot of the train was above trees. The view of the mining camp was especially wonderful. Climbing in low range, otherwise high range drive. Took the trail to Silverton once we got down.

Went west to east. There's a bit of climbing early on then it gets extremely narrow, steep, and you're bouncing over relatively large rocks. I was carrying a lot of extra weight with camping gear in my 4runner so that climb was a slow, steady pace. After you get over the pass you're quickly on an easy minivan road.

I just drove this trail last month and its super pretty and a really fun drive. Bad news is that the trail south of the intersection of CR31 and CR31A (the jumbled intersection on the map) has been washed out in a landslide and doesn't exists anymore.. In addition CR31 has a large locked gate crossing it as you make the sharp turn north to head back up to the Million Dollar Highway. This makes the trails just a quick out and back but it is still absolutely worth exploring and taking a drive on.

Absolutely beautiful! Had a bear sighting near Animas Fork. Drove a lot of it in the rain with no issues.

Easy driving with amazing views. The ghost town was so cool. There are also a few vault toilets along the way.

I used to use this for mountain biking and now that I use a 4wd this mapping works just as good if not better than some of the paid apps.

I’d rate easy. Came off another trail and used it to drive to Silverton.

Amazing trail. Combined with other trails and rode from 8 am to 6 pm. The ride to the summit was spectacular. A large part of the trail is above the tree line with incredible views. Trail was easy to drive was in high range about 1/3 of time and mostly used low to control decent and navigate rocks.

Drove most of Trail in high range. Climbed during rain, so used low range to negotiate some rocky areas. There are two lakes, and the trail ends at the second lake. Map shows it going past, but map is wrong. Abandon mine about 2/3 up, entrance blocked with boulders.

With amazing views, many camping options, rock climbing, ghost towns, rock hunting, and a trail list to keep you busy for a week. Don't forget your wrench!

Short walk to a beautiful waterfall. Went early July when it was still really dry and the waterfall wasn't very full but still enjoyed it. Plenty of boulders to jump around on and climb. Great for kids.

Took part of the Perimeter Trail and the Portland Trail after playing near the waterfall to lengthen the hike.

Pretty simple trail, ran in 2 wheel drive; most vehicles could do well. Lots of mining debris, fantastic scenery.
