Trail Overview

Lime Creek Road follows the beautiful Lime Creek steep with history going back to a hunting trail used by the Ute Indians, to prospectors/pioneers converting the trail to a road in the late 1880s to access Silverton mines and later on improved by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's. The overall road is not difficult, but please beware the road is very narrow in some sections and there are very few turnaround spots or pull offs for passing.

Great 4wheeling trail, Recommended moderate clearance for some parts. Some snow left on shady side of trail. Puddles between 2” and 10” depending on how you go through them. Mostly dry and great views.
