Silverton, CO ride in June 2019

A group from AL and LA are trailering to Silverton for a week the later part of June. Looking for trail recommendations. We're camping at an RV camp in Silverton and plan on making out and back runs from the campground.

Thank!

Re: Silverton, CO ride in June 2019

Hi Mike,
I'm from Tucson, AZ. We go to Silverton every year. We'll be up there this year from June 21 to July 20. Plenty of rides to keep you busy for weeks. Because of the snowfall this year there could be a couple of the high passes stilled snowed in. This will depend on what the snowfall is like from now until then. More snowfalls and cold weather may keep them closed until the end of June. If the weather warms and snow stops then that may not be an issue. You're welcome to call me (520-574-1080) and I'm happy to tell you all about all the trails. We also explore many mines. You really need to go through the museum in Silverton the day after you get there so when you ride you will understand and comprehend the things you see and the area history. You need to take the 100 Mine Tour too while your there.

I would highly recommend that if you have an Ipad or Iphone (not for android devices) that you download Scenic Map app. It has all the trails, routes, mine names and points of interest. It will keep track of all your rides. You can even plan turn by turn trips sitting at home before you even get there.

I believe I'm in space 50 right next to the barn. I have a Blue Rzr 1000 with luggage boxes on top and in a small garage.

You'll have a great time.

Roger, is the Scenic Map app a free one or do you pay?

Re: Silverton, CO ride in June 2019

It is a pay app, but the best one I have ever used. It is about $9 - $10 one time fee. Updates are all free when they come out. I have the western US since I don't go back to the middle or the east coast of the US. This covers me from the Canadian boarder down into a part of Mexico. From the west coast over to about Texas. Not quite sure about that boundary since I'm not looking at the map. It is all inclusive and has more info than any of the other maps. I can turn on & off features I may want and record every ride. It has 5 different map styles. I can sit in my livingroom and plan ride to places I have never been. I can plan and waypoint a hundred mile ride in about 10-15 minutes turn by turn. I've tried the other map people talk about and dislike them. I can replay any ride and it will tell you what speed you were going, elevation, direction, long/lat and when you stop. You can have your map as detailed or plain as you want. It can be used in 3D or 2D format.

For instance. I just went up to Bluff, UT last week and have never been there. I planned out a weeks worth of rides at home and with one of the features in the menu it popped up the Indigenous lands in orange I wasn't allowed to ride on so you don't get cited.

I have a Ram clamp on mount with the Ipad X-mount and my Ipad sits between me and my passenger. I do keep my Ipad in an Otter Box to protect it from the elements.

Here is a little video I did a while back on a ride we took.

I forgot got to add that you can get Scenic Map app for other parts of the US or the entire US. I just use the one for the western part.

Re: Silverton, CO ride in June 2019

Going that early in the summer you guys may be limited on the trails you can ride. Colorado has received above average snowfall this year so some of the high mountain passes could be blocked. Most generally the local counties bull doze the passes open in prep for 4th of July. I would bet pole creek just east of Stony Pass may be impassible due to high water runoff as well limiting access over to the Rio Grande Reservoir.
We're going to Silverton in July and I'm anticipating seeing a lot of snow up high.
What a beautiful place to ride! Have fun while your out there!
