Silver Mountain 12,496 ft
This is a moderate climb that begins at the La Plata City Campground. After parking cars, we immediately cross the La Plata River (bring water shoes) and begin hiking up an old mining road for several miles until we hit Bragdon Ridge. From there we follow an intermittent trail along the ridge to Deadwood Peak (12,285). We then use the ridge line from Deadwood to hike/scramble to the top of Silver Peak. Once we hit Bragdon Ridge the views are great all the way up.
Carpool $3. Limit 10. No Dogs.
