If you’ve ever wanted to enter a dog sled race, or watch cowboys re-live a gunfight in the streets; if you’ve ever wanted to race up the side of a 13,000 foot mountain or attend Avalanche School, then Silverton is calling your name.
Come experience the hardest 100 mile race in the world during the Hardrock Endurance Run, or tackle the Kendall Mountain Run, ascending from Silverton at 9,318 feet to the peak of Kendall Mountain at a staggering 13,066 feet. Enjoy the Hardrockers festival for 3 days of mining events, attend the Bordello Ball in the fall, or come for the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad during the warm weather.
Whatever reason brings you into Silverton, the people, the atmosphere, and the adventure will beckon you to stay.
