Re: Silverton, CO ride in June 2019
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.
We are going July 6th but staying in Lake City. I would like to make a trip to Silverton the first day to visit the museum. Just curious for those that are familiar with the area, if we should take the southern leg of the loop to and from Silverton or the Northern leg. As you said, going to th museum first will explain a lot so I would like to see the majority of the mine sites after we go to the museum and not before. The next day I think we will take the other leg both from lake city and back so we can spend as much time at the sites on that leg as possible . Then the 3rd day probably make the entire loop. Not sure if that's really the best idea or not but that's what I am thinking.
I think we will be there from Saturday July 6th (arrive late at night) and leave early Thursday the 11th. So that basically gives us 4 days to ride and do whatever.
