This is an easy drive out of Silverton. We drove up this road, which winds up in Kendall Gulch, one afternoon but only made it as far as the switchback at 12,260’. I was in my Suburban and didn’t feel like the road was suitable for that type of truck beyond there. Better for a quad or a jeep to go all the way up. There was an old mine bored right into the mountain right there. There was plenty of room to turn around at that switchback too, so no problem there. The road also goes to the right at that spot, towards Kendall Peak. That one looked a little sketchy, but probably ok for smaller 4 x 4’s. I would like to return some day and go all the way up to the top of Kendall Mountain. But we had great views from where we were too. This is a simple drive that only takes a couple hours with some more awesome San Juan scenery. If in Silverton, check it out
