Lewis Mill of Colorado's San Juan Mountains

We offer guided day hikes into some of the most awesome country of the San Juan Mountains. Here you can visit historical mills, mines and many old buildings of the Silverton, Colorado area.

The Lewis Mill, one of last truly large gold and silver mills left in the area is a tough hike, but worth every step. The Old Lewis Mill sits at 12,200 feet in elevation.

It's amazing to hike up over a mountain top and see a huge historic building of yesteryear sitting where it has sat for over a hundred years!

We also guide people into Silver Lake, the mining camp with no roads leading to it.
