This 233-mile loop traverses the stunning San Juan Mountains, passing through evergreens and national forests and offering views of snow-kissed mountain tops, picturesque waterfalls, and history-steeped ghost towns. This route includes the famed Million Dollar Highway and thrilling Red Mountain Pass, between Silverton and Ouray. Just be careful if you're going south, because there are no guard rails!
Near the rocky ledges and grassy knolls of Whitewater, you may be lucky enough to spot desert bighorn sheep—and even if you don't see them, the views as you pass are worth it. And that's only one highlight during this 133-mile adventure. Also, make sure to leave plenty of time to admire the Unaweep Divide, a canyon in the Uncompahgre Plateau cut by two separate creeks, leaving a red dirt peninsula dotted by trees.
On this 82-mile route, you'll receive an unmatched view of the Rocky Mountains’ true majesty. At one point, you'll see five fourteeners—the term for mountain peaks exceeding 14,000 feet in elevation.
