Discover somewhere hidden in Silverton

You can still imagine the clang of pickaxes and the clink of whiskey shots as you stroll down the dusty streets of Silverton. Set high in the Rocky Mountains of southern Colorado, this is a place that still echoes with the ghosts of the great American Gold Rush. As the heart of San Juan County, it's also grown up to tout truly handsome turn-of-the-century architecture; part Wild West, part Victorian revival. And then there are those Silverton vacation rentals, ranging from cozy mountain lodges to historic loft conversions nestled between the old saloons.

Things to do

Striking it rich in Silverton

Follow in the footsteps of the prospectors of old by hopping up the ridges to the Mayflower Gold Mill – you'll be able to see the metallurgy processes and mining skills employed to extract gold from the rough ores. Then, you can wiggle this way and that along the gasp-inducing bends of the so-called Million Dollar Highway, which joins up with the San Juan Skyway Scenic Byway to reveal the rust-hued ridges of Red Mountain Pass. For walkers, the Ice Lakes Trail is a must, with alpine flower fields and stark tundra to wonder at.

Activities

Skis and hiking shoes at the ready in Silverton

When the warm weather dominates, Silverton is a veritable outdoor hub. Packed into its own fold in the middle of the Rocky Mountains, Silverton vacation rentals have trailheads right on their doorstep, not to mention scenic drives through the heart of some of Colorado's most dramatic ranges. Come winter, the hiking boots are swapped for ski gear. Salopettes donned, the Silverton Mountain beckons to the north, and the winding black diamonds and blue runs of Telluride are just an hour over La Junta peak to the west.

Weather

Seek powder and peaks in Silverton

Silverton shines like a gold nugget twice every year. Its first glimmer comes with the ski season, which typically lasts from November to April on the powder-puffed off-piste runs of Silverton Mountain just to the north of town – check out the possibility of getting ski-ready Silverton vacation rentals if that's what you're after. The other top time to travel here comes with summer. That's between May and August, presenting the best hiking conditions across the alpine meadows and peaks.

Natural features

Silverton is shrouded by the Rocky Mountains

Protected reserves, rugged mountain ranges, and national forests surround Silverton on practically all sides. To the north, the serrated tips of Mount Sneffels herald one of the fabled fourteeners of Colorado, and the Silverton Mountain is awash with snow-dusted off-piste runs. To the south, the San Juan National Forest is pierced by the hooting steam trains of the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad – a must-ride deep into canyons and snow-capped summits. Meanwhile, the roaring waterfalls and the Continental Divide of the Rio Grande spread out in the east.
