Ophir & Imogene for team building???

My boss has selected me to plan what trails we do for our upcoming team building exercise for my group at work. We're renting jeeps in Silverton (I think) and spending a day running trails. My first thought is to run Ophir, stop for lunch in Telluride and run Imogene back over to Ouray then return to Silverton. Any thoughts, alternate options, and opinions from people with more experience on these trails than myself would be appreciated.

those are good options. it would make for a great day! I am not sure what kind of team building your looking for but another option is Picayne Gulch/Placer Gulch over to California and drop into Animas Forks which is a ghost town that is almost all there. cool spot. then over to the bottom half of Engeneer pass into Ouray for lunch. then back over to Corkscrew to Silverton/Lake Como Trail back to Silverton.
I really like this loop. Ran it this year and was blown away by the outstanding scenery.....It is now on my "for sure" list in that area!
if your with an experienced group then there is always drive the million dollar highway to the Black Bear trailhead and BB to Telluride and then Ophir to Silverton. My other "for sure trail".
no matter where you go in the San Juans you can't go wrong. My favorite all time area for scenery!!!

Call the rental places first, there are passes that they will NOT let you run in the rentals. That would be the best place to start...

Corkscrew and Imogene would be a great run, but as stated, I don't think you can pick aa bad trail up there.

Wow! I got lost just reading that lol. I've done picayune/placer, and engineer those could definitely be good but I haven't done the the others except black bear and I really don't trust most of these guys to drive that one.

That's the first I've heard about rental places not allowing certain trails. My lead is supposed to call and reserve jeeps tomorrow so i'll have him check.

Thanks for the input so far. There's so many good trails up there its hard to choose.

I'm only a couple hours away and still can't manage to get up there enough. Damn work usually gets in the way but at least this one time its taking me up there and paying me for it.
