Silverton is a Victorian mining town frozen in time. Fewer than 500 year round residents call this alpine paradise home. Nowadays thousands of visitors wanting to experience the best of what the San Juan high country offers each summer arrive either via the San Juan Skyway Scenic Byway or the turn of the century narrow gauge Durango and Silverton Railroad.
Situated well over 9,000 feet and surrounded in all directions by some of the largest and most beautiful mountain scenery and abundant and diverse wildlife, Silverton is as close to traveling back to the turn of the century gold rush era as one is likely to ever experience.
Wilderness Trails offers several ways to experience this mountain treasure, either by taking the train for a day trip excursion while staying at the ranch and also by train or motor coach as one leg of the San Juan Scenic Overland Skyway AdvenTour.
Which ever you choose, you won't be disappointed!
