Are you a fan of hiking? If you haven’t tried the Ouray Perimeter Trail, you’re missing out on one of the most popular paths found in the San Juan Mountains. In fact, trail registers reported some impressive numbers: over 25,000 people experienced the trail last year alone, which is considered to be just a fraction of the actual number of people exploring Ouray Perimeter Trail.
Ouray Perimeter Trail has been around for a decade now and counting, which begs the question: why the seemingly sudden rise in popularity? For starters, there is a uniqueness to the trail that makes it a truly enchanting experience. Hikers will cross a sextet of rivers and streams and the trail also winds through a quartet of waterfalls. Those with an appreciation for history and geology will also find some intriguing Precambrian rock that’s been around for millions of years. Oh, and of course there is the stunningly picturesque mountain scenery.
For tourists, Ouray Perimeter Trail conveniently begins at the Ouray Visitor Center, which makes it easy to get started. With its road intersections, it also allows hikers to tweak their experience based on their schedule.
