Gorgeous hike, as far as we went. We turned back after 3.25 miles due to a washed out crossing (we're older, and more careful than some), though it could be crossed with care. Beautiful views all the way: waterfalls, mining equipment, an open mine. No ice or snow. Loved the "wind chime" effect from walking on the rock flakes on the initial climb. A "must-do" hike for the Ouray area.
