Awesome little hike for the family. Easy to get to when in Ouray, so there’s no reason not to do it unless parking lot is full. Then, you can just walk to it from wherever you’re parked in town.

4.5 miles in 2hrs 28min, AT recording stopped early. Listed as "hard" but unless you're a flatlander, it's definitely only a moderate trail. Beautiful views of the mountains and Ouray all the way up. Old mining bunkhouse and building are cool.

Maybe the steepest trail I’ve done, but my dog and I did the whole thing with an extension up the ridge from the saddle in about 3:15. The trail really shines once you get above the tree line. The tundra is gorgeous, and the view over the pass is top notch. It’s hard going up, but a lot of payoff for a relatively short trail.

Watch clocked 9.7 miles round trip to Yellow Jacket Mine and back. Relentless ascent but very interesting trail, scenery, mine ruins. The ledge segment isn’t too long and while precipitous, you don’t feel as if you need to hug the wall.

Very technical on the Ouray side! Leave your F-150 at home...unless it’s a raptor!

I love this trail. The views are absolutely amazing. This is the second time for us to do this trail on a trip to Ouray it’s one of our favorites. It is steep but can’t beat the views almost the entire hike. We are in our 60’s and pretty fit but I do recommend hiking poles. Not a trail for the inexperienced hiker.

HikingGreat!

For reference, I live at 600 ft elevation but am a pretty fit 21 year old. In total, this hike took me about 8 hours, but I stopped to eat and took a million pictures. The first mile is the hardest as it is switchbacks of scree. However, the views are totally worth it! It for sure reminded me of Switzerland. Many parts of the trail are quite narrow with steep drop offs to one side. If you trip and fall like I did, your heart might stop and your life might flash before your eyes. Definitely take it slow and be careful! You follow a stream for most of the hike, and cross it about four times. It’s not super deep or fast though. In the more wooded areas and above the tree line were many wildflowers. At 3ish and 4.5ish miles, there are old mining ruins. All in all, this was a pretty taxing hike. I never felt like I was dying, but I was breathing heavily most of the time and felt like I could eat an entire buffet after. Lastly, when it comes to footwear and gear, I had no difficulty without using poles and wearing chacos.

OHV/Off Road DrivingGreat!Rocky

Driving stock 4Runner Off Road. Needed Crawl mode on tough, rocky initial climb. Glad we’d been practicing a few days before tackling this. Beautiful drive across to Lake City— friendly, nice town with lots of lunch options. On return, chose California Gulch turns near Animus Forks. Climbed to top of hill at California Pass - great 360 degree view, maybe the best view in the whole area. Then down Corkscrew Gulch. Great day!

Amazing trail. Not for the inexperienced and faint of heart. First mile is steep 12 switchbacks on broken slate and narrow trail with several major drops. More level for second mile, narrow path and major drops continue, as gray cliffs increasingly overhang trail, wind picks up, and path enters a high, steep gorge. Multiple creek cascade views. Incredible views of Ouray and 13ers. We turned around near the 2-mile point. Took us 3.5 hours at abt 1.2mph pace. “Hard” rating seems accurate considering incline and technical trail. We were helped by a trekking pole each. Would do trail again (and go further) if at all possible. We hiked afternoon of July 28 with plenty of parking and little traffic.

Not accessible for wheels but possible for walking devices. I navigated with forearm crutches with major assistance from two other adults. Big steps. Loose gravel. But amazing view at the end if you can navigate it.

Great trail! We ended up doing the whole perimeter trail, which was more like 6 miles. This route is actually just a section of the perimeter trail. The top left corner of the map is where you’d veer right at the road (if going clockwise) instead of continuing on the perimeter trail as signs suggest.

Really cool trail up to Engineer Pass. We then took Horsethief trail back to town.

Beautiful trail, but not the easiest without a lifted Jeep on 35s or true ORV! Did it in a stock height F150 FX4 with 33” Pathfinder AT tires - would not recommend. Did the pass counter-clockwise - would not recommend. It was fairly busy, and I was against traffic the whole time. There were some very narrow spots where I had to hug the hill at about 15° off camber. Just after the pass, on the switchbacks, there is a spot that needs spotting. I had one wheel in the air for a good moment, and slightly bottomed out after picking my line. Shortly after that I passed a built Jeep on either 40s or 42s and truly envied him. At the fork to Animas or Mineral Creek, I took Mineral Creek, and thankfully ran into a group at the restrooms who just came from Ouray via Mineral Creek. They strongly advised me to take Animas to Silverton which I gladly did. Overall, I made it out alive, my truck is unharmed, and the views were more than spectacular! In hindsight, I learned my wife is not a fan of off roading whatsoever, and I would never do another pass like that in my truck again without a lift and bigger tires. Live and learn, but do so smiling! Also, the looks I got from others were well worth being “that guy.” 10/10 would recommend
