“Great Hike”
Review of Perimeter Trail

Ranked #8 of 35 things to do in Ouray
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We went up to Cascade Falls. Unplanned, we decided to continue our hike on the Perimeter Trail. We worked our way to the north towards US 550. There are some great views along the narrow well maintained trail. There is a neat section where you walk under a rock wall overhang. As we neared the highway we could see the huge outdoor pool that we would love to try out when we come back to Ouray. We hiked down to US 550, then into town and back to our waiting car.

We had a great time walking the perimeter trail. The views were excellent. The park was quiet and neat.

Be in shape! Steep inclines and declines. Hiking shoes/boots a plus. Take water. Don't forget a camera, breathtaking!

Lots of great vistas, good exercise. Although the trail was pretty muddy because of recent snow. Be prepared for temperature swings as you go through different areas of the trail

Great views of the town. We were there at the end of the fall color. and did not stay anywhere else. We had been going to the national park Mesa Verde but the government was in a shut down.
