Silver Star LOGISTICS
GETTING HERE

​The Silver Star Hut is located just 18 miles from downtown Durango. In the summer, the cabin is a scenic 20-minute drive on a 2WD road. In the winter, the final two miles of the road are closed to cars, making it our favorite time of the year. The ski-in is family-friendly, follows the river bottom and climbs only gradually. To get to La Plata Canyon, drive west out of Durango on U.S. Hwy. 160. Turn right on County Road 124 after 10 miles and proceed north through the burg of Mayday and into the La Plata Mountains.
