Mount Ouray Summit Trail
The off-trail approach through flowery meadows is a nice way to start the hike. Navigation is relatively easy, and once you are on the southern curl of the west ridge, you are treated to a long ridge walk to a scenic summit. The scrambling on the ridge is fun class 2 that is sustained the entire way. It’s a straightforward Sawatch hike without the tedious switchbacks or gratuitous talus slog, making it a fine bookend to this hiker-friendly range.
