13er Access from Silver Plume

Postby jsdratm » Mon Jun 24, 2013 11:22 am

Hello there, I was planning to do a short backpacking trip this summer from either Silver Plume or Empire to access Engelmann and Bard Peaks from the east. I have seen the road from Empire that allows access to this area, but I was wondering if there is also access from the town of Silver Plume. From google maps it appears that there is a trail from Silver Plume leading up toward Silver Plume Mountain.

It's been many years but yes there is a trail up towards Silver Plume Mountain from town. I don't recall it being a great trail but it works to get up there.
