Trails leading from Ouray generally date to the 19th Century and were constructed to access mining properties. Varying in length and elevation gain, these hikes will generally be more challenging than the Perimeter Trail but will offer very similar scenic rewards.
Some of these trails will be out and back (or more accurately up and down) while others can be combined into loop hikes for more variety.
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.
