Driving Times

Hi, I am going to Montrose for the first time and was wondering how long of a drive it is to Ouray, Telluride and Silverton.

Montrose to Ouray is 45 minutes, another hour (or more depending on stops / scenery views) to Silverton. (hwy 550 South)

Montrose to Telluride is about 1.5 hours...(hwy 550 south > hwy 62 west > hwy 145 south)

It would be 6 hours, plus stops, to drive Montrose >> Ouray >> Silverton >> Durango >> Telluride (San Juan Skyway / Million Dollar Hwy) - you could easily reverse the route too.

Awesome! Thank you for the information! I will probably stay in Ouray since Telluride will be packed with tourists for the film festival.
