Canyon Creek drains the vast alpine area south and west of Ouray that is justly famous for its steep terrain, rugged roads and extensive mining history. There are also a number of trails that reward hikers with stunning views and a quiet, dust-free solitude that is distinctly superior to that experienced by all of those on wheels down below.
The trails that serve the Canyon Creek valleys and basins are listed below in increasing distance from Ouray.
Ouray Mountain Rescue, under the direction of the Ouray County Sheriff's Office, is always on call for assistance. The Rescue Team is a volunteer organization of mountaineers, technical climbers, paramedical personnel and a K-9 team. All are experienced in rescue techniques. In order to offset training and equipment expenses, tax-deductible donations are gratefully appreciated. Thank you for your support.
