 Mt Ouray- Almost 14K  

I see Ouray quite a bit living near Salida and always wanted to hike it but a mt bike ride up Marshall Pass with great views of the peak put Ouray at the top of my list. I followed the route from Marshall Pass. Ouray is a worthwhile Centennial an I highly recommend it. Below is the link to the full trip report and plenty of photos.

Thank you for the report, as I am hiking Ouray tomorrow morning on a solo jaunt. The beta on this TR was most helpful....thanks again!

P.S. my nickname from my dad some 50+ years ago, and still today, is Tomcat!!!

Be well.


Have fun

If you follow the CDT from Marshall Pass, the turn off on the old trail is about 1.5 miles I believe from the TH. The old trail is pretty obvious. If you hit the singletrack on the CDT where there is a trail use sign you went just a hair too far. There is also a description on that heads directly up the ridge from just below TH and skips CDT part.

I’m doing what the page says to enter a link. They never seem to work for me on this site. The link exists just won’t work from this page for some reason.–mt–ouray–almost–14er.html
If it still doesn’t work copy and paste I guess.

Thanks for the additional beta, heading out now from Salida to tackle this "Almost 14er". I am looking forward to a nice walk to stretch out the old legs in preparation for the Crestones and beyond.

Thanks again.
