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.

Volunteer Appreciation Picnic

Join us in celebrating our volunteers at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Picnic.  This year our picnic/happy hour will be held on Thursday, September 29th from 3:00-6:00 pm at the Amphitheatre Overlook.  The Overlook is near the Bill Forsythe memorial bench.  Bill was a founding member of OTG and our first president.  Drinks and snacks will be provided, but please bring a camp chair. You are also welcome to bring an appetizer or dessert to share.  

In the event of rain, the party will be moved to the Hart home at 909 Potosi Pl. in Ouray.  Please call or email Lisa at 970-209-5246 or ouray.otg@gmail.com for more information or questions.
