: Tuckerville is in La Plata county at gps co-ordinates 37 29' 33" N, by 107 29' 5" W. From Vallecito Lake, Middle Mountain Road winds about 13 miles thru spectacular scenery. At mile 10, you reach Dollar Lake trailhead. Tuckerville is 3 miles beyond either Dollar Lake, or Cave Basin. (Directions become ambiguous), But they say you will need 4wd vehicle for last 2 miles, unless you hike in. Tuckerville was old mining camp, and from there is supposedly breathtaking view of Los Pinos Valley. There are several tour companies in that area, like Holli-da, Pink Jeep (or some jeep outfit), etc. They all know Tuckerville. You could also contact Durango C of C.
