Hiked about 15% of the perimeter trail to see the Box Canon bridge (access through tunnel) and the adjacent Twin Peaks trail. Nice trail, well marked, good views of the city and mountains surrounding Ouray.

Rugged in places but very doable if you're up for an adventure! Plenty of great places to take pictures. Be sure to grab a free map at the visitors center before you start.

This was a somewhat strenuous hike with lots ups and downs. There were some good views, but for about the same energy, the Sutton Mine trail was more scenic.
