If the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains doesn't attract you to this town, the recreation opportunities will. Ouray is a haven for recreationists of all ability levels and interests. The abandoned mining roads provide ample four-wheel driving terrain. Red Mountain Pass and the Million Dollar Highway support scenic driving and hiking during the Summer months, and cross-country and backcountry skiing during the Winter. Anglers will enjoy the waters of the Uncompahgre River that lead north out of town. When the waterfalls descending from Red Mountain Pass freeze in Winter the ice climbers arrive in Ouray. If you cant find a venue for your favorite sport among these options the national forest that surrounds the town site of Ouray provides opportunities for hiking, climbing, mountain biking, camping and fishing.
