As Silver dominates Durango’s skyline it is a very satisfying mountain to climb and sit atop.
We will start at La Plata City campground, ford the La Plata River and hike for several steep miles up seemingly endless switchbacks on an unmaintained jeep road. Then on and off a very open and scenic trail up and across Deadwood Mt. to Silver Mt. This is a long, steep hike with significant elevation gain, but there is no scary exposure.
Limit 15. Dogs OK. Carpool $4.
