Sketchy in some spots but a lot of fun! 4x4 a must!

Stunning views. It was a bit more difficult that I had bargained for but manageable. Long stretches of shelf road and some rock obstacles when I drove it. Much more difficult thank Yankee Boy Basin or Alta Lakes. You can avoid the harder stretches by avoiding the section that goes to Ouray. Advise airing down.

Beautiful Alpine basins.

Jeeped it. Make sure you are in a proper 4WD vehicle like a Jeep or ATV.

Scenic trip from Sliverton/Ouray to Lake City. We started in Silverton, to Animas Forks, then over Engineer Pass, down to Lake City. Returned via Cinnamon Pass to Animas Forks, and then back to Silverton. Lots of high mountain scenery, and mining ruins.
