Maggie Gulch mine is an old mining site at an elevation of 3.755m (12,319ft) above the sea level, located in San Juan County, southwest Colorado, USA. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.
Nestled in the San Juan Mountains, the road to the mine is totally unpaved. It’s called Maggie Gulch 4wd road. 4 wheel drive vehicles moderate clearance, and beefy tires are required. The road is usually impassable from October to June.
Part of the San Juan National Forest, the trail follows numerous remnants of Colorado's mining heritage. Starting from the town of Middleton, northeast of Silverton, the trail is 7.66 km (4.76 mi) long. It was built in the late 1890's by Silverton interests.
