Storms Gulch Trail
Welcome to the Switzerland of America! Surrounded by arguably the most beautiful mountains in Colorado, Ouray is a premier year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts. The town came to life in 1875 with the discovery of gold and silver, and remained vibrant with visitors traveling to enjoy the area’s majestic scenery. The mountains in this part of the state never fail to deliver: high, rugged peaks rise in every direction, with even the little ones boasting upward of 11,000 feet, and hundreds of clear, cold streams flow through narrow gorges and wide valleys. Ouray is full of enchanting Victorian homes, and Main Street boasts classic buildings like the St. Elmo Hotel, Beaumont Hotel, and Livery Barn. There are more than forty superb hiking trails in Ouray County to complement the town’s charm, and this one lives up to expectations with excellent trail conditions, challenging terrain, and unbelievable views.
