Silverthorne's Blue River Trail is a hard surface paved trail that provides a great way to experience the Blue River and its scenic surroundings. The trail is a family friendly route that follows the river as it winds through Silverthorne. The trail is relatively flat as it follows the the river through Town. However, if you are looking for a workout there is one section with a significant elevation gain at the south end of Town as you climb switchbacks up to the Dillon Reservoir. We invite you to come join us on the trail and enjoy what we call "The Blue River Experience."
