The historic Alpine Loop is a very popular circular offroad route that navigates through the high elevation backcountry in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It traverses Engineer Pass (12,800 feet) and Cinnamon Pass (12,840 feet), connecting the towns of Silverton and Ouray with Lake City (generally considered to beginning and ending point of the Alpine Loop).
The Alpine Loop spans a total distance of approximately 65 miles. It usually takes a full day to complete it under normal circumstances. This time is consumed not only by navigating the rigorous terrain and narrow roads, but also ghost towns including Animas Forks and Capitol City and various abandoned mining camps and structures that are all around 100 years old.
