Mild to Wild Rafting/Jeep Tours ~ Silv Jeep Tour and San Juan Skyway Bus Package Youth 8AM Meet Time

Tour the awe-inspiring, beautiful Million Dollar Highway as you are shuttled to Silverton. Along the way you will see the grandiose peaks of Grizzly Peak, Engineer Mountain, Pigeon and Turret, Spud Hills, the Twilights, and Snowdon, all before even reaching Molas Pass! At Molas Pass, a large section of the San Juan Mountains can be seen followed by Molas Lake, a high-alpine lake set against the backdrop of the San Juan Mountains.

Passing through the old Victorian mining town of Silverton, established in the early 1870's, you will venture off road on old jeep trails heading northeast into old, perhaps haunted, mining relics in the mountains. You will return to Silverton early afternoon for lunch (which is not included) and a little shopping before you are shuttled back to Durango.

*Note: During the end of July and into early August, our Silverton jeep tour becomes more of a wildflower tour. Experience magnificent and stunning Colorado wildflowers and have the opportunity to walk gentle trails amidst towering peaks with ample breaks to take photos!
