Ouray is located in the majestic San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado. Our village is surrounded by peaks and cliffs forming our box canyon. Cascade Falls seems to pour down on Main Street from over 200ft up, while Box Canyon Falls can be heard on a quiet night thundering in its rocky cravass on the other side of town. Ouary was founded in 1876, the same year as Colorado statehood. Its roots are in mining, first silver then later gold. Our town was one of the centers of Colorado mining for many years. Unlike many mining camps that grew roughly from the sides of mountains then died, Ouray held a natural beauty and mistique that few other locations can come close to matching. This is one reason Ouray held a natural attraction for families, busineses and churches to come and grow as a community. Today, therefore, Ouray is listed, as a community, on the national register of historic places with numerous vintage victorian homes and buildings to enjoy. Ouray is a walking town being ten by seven blocks in size. Everything is within walking distance from everything else. The museum, the Ouray Hot Springs Pool (open year round), the four star restaraunts, galleries, curio shops & even the beginn
ers ski hill are right in town. Ouray is a center for outdoor mountain activities including cross country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, ice climbing, and snowmobling in winter to summer activities including jeeping the abandoned mining trails to the tundra above 13000ft, hiking, mountain biking, mountain climbing, and more!! Spring brings the wildflowers and the snow melt that surges the waterfalls to capacity, Fall is the spectacular show of golden aspen color!! The Fourth of July and New Years Eve bring parades and fabulous fireworks! Side trips from Ouray include Silverton (26mls) over the spectacular Million Dollar Highway, one of the top three scenic drives in the USA. In Silverton you will be at the Northern terminus of the Silverton Railroad, an authentic 1800's steam passenger train that runs 45miles down the Animas Canyon. Mesa Verde National Park & Black Canyon National Park are within easy driving distance. Telluride Ski Resort is just 45 miles away. (1/2 price lift tickets available!)
