Great views on all sides of Ouray from the Perimeter Trail! We spent 3 hours and did about 80% of the trail. Great way to get a feel for the Ouray area while we were driving from Durango to Moab. Hope to come back and spend more time some day!

This six-mile trail system has been constructed in segments that now allow hikers to circumnavigate the entire town. Some sections such as along the west side of the Uncompahgre River through town are easy for strolling and other parts across Oak Creek and up through Box Canyon are more challenging. The Perimeter Trail intersects many other popular hiking trails and the Ice Park area which allows access without moving a vehicle from the hotel/motel parking lot.

This hike has lots of ups and downs, some easier than others but nothing that a relatively in shape person can't handle. We did get off track but because there are several trails that go back down to the town we were able to find our way fairly easily. Be sure to bring water, a hat, sunscreen, and your phone. It is the quintessential hike in 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.
