Local guide for hiking in Ouray

by lianna

We will be in Ouray on Sept 3 and 4. If the weather cooperates, we would like to go on an easy hike on the 3rd and a moderate one on the 4th. I am trying to find a local experienced hiker, who knows the trails who would be interested to be our guide for at least the more difficult hike.

Any help would be appreciated.

Be sure to take advantage of the large city run hot spring when you get done.

Orvis Hot Springs at nearby Ridgeway is for the more off beat.

Travel Tips for Ouray

Tread Lightly

by KiKitC

Take only photos, leave no trace...

It goes without saying, to protect our natural areas, stay on maintained trails. Driving on delicate areas destroys wildlife, which in turn contributes to soil erosion in vast areas and causes a chain reaction of natural destruction. There's plenty of off-roads trails here...use them.

Any garbage you create while out on the tral, carry out with you. It is unsightly and attracts wild animals to places that tourists congregate.

There is a very strong non-profit organization that works with outdoor enthusiasts to educate and promote "non-invasive" outdoor use. For more on the Tread Lightly philospohy and how you can help protect our mother earth...visit the Tread Lightly.org

Vehicle Safety Tips

by KiKitC

The following tips may seem second nature to some...but in case you were wondering...

(courtesy of the OHV Colorado/Tread Lightly informational brochure for Colorado Trails)

* Four-wheel drive and high-clearance vehicles are recommended in many places

* Uphill traffic has the right of way but common courtesy works best

* Loose gravel and rocks can be found on many routes. Please drive slowly and in control at all times.

* Drive slowly around blind turns and near other traffic

* Do not park where you will obstruct the road

Historic Downtown

by goingsolo

Ouray's downtown is designated a National Historic District. The Ouray Chamber Resort Association provides a walking tour of downtown Ouray and explains the towns mining history and turn of the century architecture. Walking through town on a cold November morning.

Warm clothing

by GrumpynAM

Always bring along a warm jacket or sweater in the summer. The weather in the mountains can change rapidly. It can be sunny and warm and 10 minutes later cold, cloudy and rainy. Since you cannot see the clouds moving in you can really be caught off guard. Camera with extra memory cards or lots of film, extra batteries, telephoto lens, tripod.

Bachelor Mine tour

by goingsolo

In 1884, three bachelors discovered silver near Ouray. The mine later produced $90 million in silver. The tour leads you through the mine on a mine train with real miners as guides. There's also an opportunity to pan for gold.
