Ouray's online resource for regional hiking trails

Welcome to 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 County's trails.  Our members take a stewardship role in protecting, preserving and maintaining the natural and recreational resources we all enjoy.

This site provides information and updates on the 84 mapped and maintained trails available to hikers in Ouray County. Exploring this website will give the visitor a sense of the incredible scenery and history to be discovered along these trails. It is not, however, intended to convey all the information necessary and desirable for a safe hiking experience. The map and guide described on another page is an essential reference in this rugged and complex terrain.

For planning purposes, trails have been organized into six categories or regions, although there will necessarily be some overlap. We hope these pages are helpful in ensuring the visitor a quality recreational experience in the time available here. Feedback on hiker experiences and trail conditions is always welcome and can be left here.
