We were just out there and did a few trails and it was fantastic. I would start with Corkscrew Gulch from highway 550 trailhead (see photo below).
Note: the trailhead map is not complete so don't use it for navigating.
Corkscrew is fairly smooth but steep and will brake the ice for what's to come. The views of the two red mountains are breathtaking. Corkscrew ascends between the two red mt peaks.
Climb up to Corkscrew pass well above the tree line and rejoice in the view. You will be amazed in what your Jeep just took you to.
After Corkscrew pass it's time to see what it's like to point your nose down hill because it's steep too. Use low gears and let your engine do the braking to prevent brakes from overheating. Overheated brakes will result in loss of braking and potential death. At the bottom go left at the intersection for more or go right to Silverton if you need a change of underwear.
Left takes you up to Hurricane Pass and Lake Como with a steeper and a little bumpier climb and snow (no snow on the road). So fare no damage to my TH. Nothing she can't handle with ease.
Now you are finding out what Jeeping is all about.
On to California Pass and California Gulch. Bythis time the nerves have settled down because you know what your TH can handle. So enjoy the views.
At the bottom of California gulch is Animas Forks an old mining ghost town. It's very well preserved and you can go inside the old building.
At this point we chose to head for Silverton since adding more would be many more hours on the trail to continue to on Lake City via Cinnamon pass or reported very bumpy ride back to Ouray via Engineer Pass. Besides Silverton is a cool town to visit. Total round trip time was about 6-7 hours from Ouray to Ouray.
