The Matterhorn Trail begins off the Ridge Stock Driveway on a ridge southeast of Matterhorn Peak. A map, such as the Hiking Trails of Ouray County should be used to assist in accessing this trail.


The trail leaves the Ridge Stock Driveway to the north and follows a valley on the east side of Matterhorn, then rises over a ridge and drops down into the the East Fork of the Cimarron gorge and connects, on its north end, with the Upper East Fork trail. There are beautiful views of Matterhorn and Wetterhorn peaks along the way.
