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!!!
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.
