Looking for info on Uncompahgre Trails

We are planning a trip this summer that basically goes from Cripple Creek to Silverton and back. We pretty much have the westbound route worked out. Now we are trying to get back east on a different route. Wondering if anyone has traveled much in the Uncompahgre Forest...NE of Ouray. Specifically we are looking at going over Owl Creek Pass on 858 to Silver Jack Reservoir. Our concern is a motorcycle only trail #225 (on MVUM) from Silver Jack...crossing FS864...on in to Alpine Guard Station. How rugged is this trail? We are all intermediate riders...on various bikes in the 400cc range. Thanks for the info.

look into the next page in Rockies Regionals. We just discussed this one, the Alpine Trail. Uphill, lots of switchbacks. It is not super gnarly, but is a good workout for sure!

Thanks...I didn't realize that trail was called the alpine trail also. It looks like it might be a little too much work for what we are planning. I may try to get out earlier and check it out to make sure.
