Follow the Saints John Road from Montezuma toward the old mining town of Saints John for approximately
.5 miles to the intersection with the Hunkidori Mine Road (FDR 276). Bear to the left and continue toward Saints John.
The Saints John Mine was the first silver strike in Colorado (1863). This glacial valley boasted a
mining camp, library, mill, smelter and sawmill, but no saloons. Saints John was named after St.
John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist. The end of the road has spectacular views of Grays and Torreys Peaks
to the northeast
