Silt, Colorado is where you are at exit 97 off I-70 going west past Glenwood Springs, west past New Castle.
Silt Island Park, one of the greatest places to park of all time. Here you can walk your dogs along the banks of the Colorado, or drop your fishing boat into its waters. If you were rafting from upriver, this is a great place to exit the river.
All of the land in between Garfield and Alkali Creek south of New Castle; Divide Creek and Dry Hollow also south of New Castle and Silt; is some of the prettiest ranching land in the west. At the end of the roads to the south, there are several entrances to the White River National Forest, and the Grand Mesa. Keep going on a back road and get to Collbran with a great, scenic shortcut; but only in a 4-wheel drive vehicle when dry.
Harvey Gap State Park is a recreational haven. It’s a body of water for non motorized boats, kayaks, stand up paddleboards and fishing.
