This trail ascends two high mountain passes, thus affording excellent views and good opportunities for photography. Grizzly Peak, Rolling Mountain, and Graysill Mountain are all accessible from the Rico/Silverton Trail, providing mountain-climbing possibilities for those interested. The trail rises above timberline on two occasions, but for the most part winds through a subalpine, coniferous forest. The alpine meadows above timberline typically abound with wildflowers at the end of July and in August. Water and campsites are easily found in this area. Water in this area should be filtered, to prevent problems with Giardia.
This section of the Colorado Trail is popular for high elevation routes for mountain biking. Road access to the trail is remote and 4WD, but many long loops are possible.
