With its location nestled in the San Juan Mountains, Ouray’s hiking appeal makes perfect sense. With so many different trails offering picturesque vistas of the landscape and a hearty walk, how do you go about choosing the best trail if time is limited? Allow us to introduce the incredible Perimeter Trail.
In terms of vistas, few trails match the spectacular scenery of the six-and-a-half mile Perimeter Trail. Considering its length, it’s a moderately difficult trail best suited for those with experiences but in return, you’re in for a memorable experience. As you venture the trail you’re going to travel by cascading waterfalls, caves that were once populated with miners seeking fortune, and the popular Ouray Ice Park. The trail is also not for the faint of heart as you’ll notice sheer drops, so it may be a better idea to choose something less difficult if you’re bringing children along. Hikers will also have the flexibility of completing the trail in its entirety or you can access Perimeter Trail at different points. Pets are welcome to experience Perimeter Trail with you provided they’re on a leash.
