Very steep... but great views and a beautiful waterfall! Definitely worth it if you’re down for a long climb

Amazing views and unique trail!

Hiked to Alpine Mine 5/26. Trail is dry to the little overlook at 2.1 miles before the mine and overlook of the town. The next half mile to the mine and overlook, snow is patchy. Several downed trees to cross that I didn’t remember, however were likely covered in snow on our last ascent in May last year. Always an early season favorite for acclimation with great views of Hayden/Pitosi and the town of Ouray.

Def step but worth it

Left mid-morning - is a consistent ascent that will get your blood pumping quickly and it keeps at you. Took the Alpine Mine trail to the outlook - a good workout in the trees. Beautiful views south and then of Ouray at the top. Coming down is less strenuous - mind your footing as there are rocks. Overall a great 3 hour round trip.

Super simple and a must when visiting. Great for pictures

Great hike going clockwise across from the. Is it or Center. A couple of waterfalls - provided you head into Box Cañon - a beautiful river, a couple of creeks, excellent views of Ouray, some carved out canyons! Highly suggest this hike.

Baby Bathtubs is an adorable trail that connects to the Ouray Perimeter trail. You’ll see multiple, unique mini water falls before the trail ends and connects to the Ouray Perimeter trail. There’s a trail head/parking lot right off of the Box Canyon/Million Dollar Highway road.

This was an amazing hike. Our car couldn’t make it to the top so we had to start at the bottom of the falls and hike up to the top. This hike was amazing, filled with snow the further back you got. Some areas were pretty sketchy with icy snow hill on trail with a steep drop down the other side. Wearing outdoor hiking shoes, our shoes got soaked. Lots of water running down the trail from melting snow. We got about a mile back and had to turn around because it was 5:30 PM, temperature was dropping, and the snowier it got the more back we went. Another hiking couple turned around at this same point. Can’t wait to do this again with less snow (or leaving earlier in the day.)

Still a lot of snow once you get past the gondola. Pretty hard packed, so not impassable. Bring gaiters if you have them, because you might posthole occasionally. Or you could wait about 2 more weeks. If you get all the way to 14 and want to climb up to 15, I would recommend some crampons. As always, beautiful views.

I don’t think I did the stuck to the trail. Not a lot of signs, but everything was very beautiful.

Awe inspiring! My family loved it. My 1 and 4 year olds could walk it while holding our hands. Such a fun experience!

Amazing views and some magical parts through the aspen woods. The tiniest bit of snow along the trail, it will probably be melted in a few days

Steep climb but views from top are spectacular.

Easy hike. Great southern views. Everyone goes up to blue lakes so you will most likely will not see anyone...until now...

Could not find the trail up. So good luck trying

Started the trail from the opposite end, by Meadows parking area. The first part of the trail was a bit muddy and icy, as it was on a part of the hill more exposed to the sun. As soon as the trail wound around to the other side of the hill, the snow was deep and ample. The trail is fairly narrow in parts, but overall was a lovely snowshoe trek with few other people.
