Trail Overview

Silver Cloud Mine is a very short in-and-out Jeep trail off Highway 550, south of the climb to Red Mountain Pass. The trail is easy to a wide spot at an old mine high on the side of a mountain. The upper part beyond the wide spot is narrower with sharp switchbacks and loose climbs. Silver Cloud Mine is at the top. There is room for a small number of Jeeps to turn around. Enjoy the scenery while you are there then head back down.


Uneven, rutted dirt trail with loose rocks, sand, erosion, and washes. Potential water crossings up to 18" deep, mud holes, and obstacles up to 2 feet, including ledges and short, steep grades.
