Welcome to the Ouray Trail Group

Enjoy our trails • Leave no trace

The Ouray Trail Group is a non-profit corporation of volunteers, founded in 1986, dedicated to the preservation and safe public use of Ouray area hiking trails.  Our members take a stewardship role in protecting, preserving and maintaining the natural and recreational resources we all enjoy.

This site provides information about the Ouray Trail Group and the hiking trails we maintain in the Ouray area.  Exploring this website will give the visitor a sense of the incredible scenery and history to be discovered along these trails.  The Ouray Trail Group map and hiking guide, offered for sale here, provide an essential reference for hiking this rugged and complex terrain, and sales support OTG's trail maintenance and construction efforts.

New Perimeter Trail Trailhead Signs!

OTG has completed the installation of the signs at the two main Perimeter Trail trailheads. The cartography by Mike Boruta, printing by In-Design Signs, and structures by Jeff Skoloda were paid for by the City of Ouray Tourism Fund, San Miguel Power Association, Ouray County Community Fund, and the Ouray Trail Group. The following people volunteered their time and professional expertise to create the sign content:
Lisa Hickman- graphic design, editing, and layout
Steve Boyle- Wildlife and Forest Ecology
Peggy Lyon- Botany
Bob Risch- Human History
CJ Brafford- Ute History
Steve Cumella- Geology
Thanks to all involved! This collaboration is an impressive addition to Ouray.
