Imogene is Colorado’s 2nd highest pass at 13,336 feet! You may be short of breath, but you will not be short of views. This is one of the most difficult trails in the area (Imogene), but still doable in a totally stock 100. You’ll spend much of the day above tree-line and there are a few optional lines with obstacles that will keep you entertained. We will return to camp via Last Dollar Highway. This run allows you to see two of the most famous roads in the state.

Clear Lake and Mineral
Limited Capacity seats available

MEET UP LOCATION: HQ a.k.a Kendall Mountain Rec Center 1 Kendall Place Silverton, CO 81433

Formerly Clear Lake to Super Secret
This is an easy run very suitable for stock vehicles. We will climb above tree-line and have lunch at Clear Lake. The lake is situated in a natural amphitheater surrounded on three sides by peaks reaching over 13,000ft. We will be sitting at 12,000 feet, so this will be a good test for those of you coming from sea level. This is also a great way to introduce yourself to the shelf roads of SW Colorado. There is some exposure on the climb and you need to stay focused.  Additionally, this trail is a fun one for families looking to spend some time at the lake and participating in some mountain lake fishing. Reaching Clear Lake is well worth the effort as the views along this trail is amazing. We will return to camp via the Super Secret Trail, with is an unmarked and unnamed trail with views that will take your breath away. This option is meant to be extremely family-friendly and rather tame.

Limited Capacity seats available

MEET UP LOCATION: Silverton Chamber of Commerce 414 Greene St, Silverton CO 81433

Poughkeepsie Gulch is the most difficult trail in the area. That’s not to say this trail is super hard, but The Wall will give you everything you may be looking for. 33’s, a rear locker, & sliders are highly recommended. Many times, we are forced to winch folks up the Wall because once it gets wet and muddy, it’s very difficult. It’s best if you have a solid recovery point on the front of your 100 as well. There are a few climbs and rock gardens that will keep you on your toes all day long. This is a fun trail for those of you seeking a challenge with a properly built rig. Sorry, but no stock 100’s allowed on this one. Remember, this is the perfect opportunity for you to test your 100 with a group of very knowledgeable trail leaders. No one will be left behind.

Complete with the Polar Plunge Challenge!  Bring your swimsuit and a very warm towel. We challenge you to a quick dip into Lake Como with Chris. (There's a small prize if you accept.)

Imogene to Yankee Boy Basin (Changed from Ophir)
Limited Capacity seats available

MEET UP LOCATION:  Silverton Conoco 315 Greene St, Silverton, CO 81433

Imogene to Ophir now will go to Yankee Basin
Imogene is Colorado’s 2nd highest pass at 13,336 feet! You may be short of breath, but you will not be short of views. This is one of the most difficult trails in the area (Imogene), but still doable in a totally stock 100. You’ll spend much of the day above tree-line and there are a few optional lines with obstacles that will keep you entertained. We will return to camp via Ophir Pass. This run allows you to see two of the most famous roads in the state.

Stony Pass to Kite Lake (Formerly Poughkeepsie Gulch to Corkscrew - with & without Bypass)
Limited Capacity seats available

MEET UP LOCATION: Silverton Chamber of Commerce 414 Greene St, Silverton CO 81433

Now Stoney Pass to Kite Lake formerly Poughkeepsie Gulch
Poughkeepsie Gulch is the most difficult trail in the area. That’s not to say this trail is super hard, but The Wall will give you everything you may be looking for. 33’s, a rear locker, & sliders are highly recommended. Many times, we are forced to winch folks up the Wall because once it gets wet and muddy, it’s very difficult. It’s best if you have a solid recovery point on the front of your 100 as well. There are a few climbs and rock gardens that will keep you on your toes all day long. This is a fun trail for those of you seeking a challenge with a properly built rig. Sorry, but no stock 100’s allowed on this one. Remember, this is the perfect opportunity for you to test your 100 with a group of very knowledgeable trail leaders. No one will be left behind.

We will show people in the group that wish to do the bypass, rather than the Wall, where it is.  The group will reconnect just after the Wall and the bypass for lunch.

California Gulch is a favorite every year for good reason. The views are incredible. Once again, this trail is not terribly difficult, but there is enough going on to keep you on your toes. We’ll also climb to 12,963 feet, so be prepared! Corkscrew Gulch is a beautiful and scenic trail that climbs between Red Mountains 1 and 2 along Red Mountain Pass. This trail starts at almost 10,000 feet, so be prepared for a beautiful day high in the mountains of Colorado.

Black Bear Pass is easily the most intimidating trail in the area. Black Bear growls more than it bites. The trail itself is not difficult, but it is technical. There is no room for mistakes and trusting your spotter and trail leader is paramount. 90% of this trail is nothing more than an easy drive in one of the most photographed areas of the country. The other 10% is a very tight descent along one-way switchbacks into town. This is a trail that when finished, leaves you with a sense of accomplishment and elation.

Take the Hundy over Ophir Pass to Telluride and explore Telluride on your own. Ophir Pass is a fairly easy trail though you spend a lot of time on a shelf road. The road is usually narrow so if you have to pass someone it can be interesting. The trail connects Telluride and Silverton and is very scenic.

Then join Chris on the Mountain Bike trails of Telluride!

Limited Capacity seats available

MEET UP LOCATION: HQ a.k.a Kendall Mountain Rec Center 1 Kendall Place Silverton, CO 81433

Now Ophir to Clear Lake
This is an easy run very suitable for stock vehicles. We will climb above tree-line and have lunch at Clear Lake. The lake is situated in a natural amphitheater surrounded on three sides by peaks reaching over 13,000ft. We will be sitting at 12,000 feet, so this will be a good test for those of you coming from sea level. This is also a great way to introduce yourself to the shelf roads of SW Colorado. There is some exposure on the climb and you need to stay focused.  Additionally, this trail is a fun one for families looking to spend some time at the lake and participating in some mountain lake fishing. Reaching Clear Lake is well worth the effort as the views along this trail is amazing. We will return to camp via the Super Secret Trail, with is an unmarked and unnamed trail with views that will take your breath away. This option is meant to be extremely family friendly and rather tame.
