Dolores to Telluride to Ouray to silver ton to Durango Colorado.

We have done this trip probably 5 times in the last 40 years but it been since 1985. Any suggestions? We will use forest service sites from Delores to Telluride. Stay in the camp ground overlooking Ouay and Molis camp,ground between Silverton and Durango. 2008 F250, 6.4 pulling a 24.5 Prowler.

Those elevations are too high for my wife with asthma. I rely on the Mountain Directory for guidance.

It's an absolutely beautiful drive and we've done it often with our 40' motorhome. However, if you don't remember it, from Dolores you'll have a steep uphill and from Ouray there will be an even steeper downhill. It just depends how you feel about mountain driving.

Be sure to check the website for Molas campground. They have recently redone it and have upped the prices. It's a very pretty setting.

As mentioned above, we too, always used the 'Mountain Directory for Truckers and RVers' when driving in the West. It's a very useful resource.

Have a good trip!

An area I have not visited but want to do so. Lots of good off-roading I understand.

Great area with beautiful drives as mentioned. We included Chama, NM in that same loop last August. Numerous activity choices for any interest(s) that you may have. Enjoy your trip and travel safely!

The great thing about driving beside the Dolores river is that there are hundreds of areas you can just pull off beside the river and dry camp.
