Hiking in Ouray Colorado: Fantastic Options to Enjoy the Great Outdoors
The Dallas-Corbett Loop hiking trail just outside of Ouray is a splendid 6.0 mile loop with a 2000 foot elevation change.The first 0.9 miles is a steep section with switchbacks up a red rock face. At the junction of Corbett and Dallas, hikers can choose. Dallas is not as steep and winds through a forest with coniferous trees while Corbett winds its way on the south side of a gorge so it can be hotter. Corbett is steeper and dryer initially but the views are stunning of Corbett and Whitehouse. From Corbett, some waterfalls are viewable in the distance of the Corbett creek and eventually, you end up in the beautiful aspen forest.

Ouray County is home to a wild and rich history of the American West. In the late 1800s in Southwest Colorado, there were miners and ranchers and hotel operators as well as merchants, travelers, and immigrants moving through the area in search of the American Dream. Although remnants remain, many on display at the Ouray History Museum, each summer, the Ouray County Historical Society pieces together an interesting array of lectures to bring the Old West back to life through the use of pictures and story tellers.
