Best Long Hike in Colorado for Families? | Ouray Perimeter Trail

Do you want to know what's the best long in Colorado for families? It just might be the Ouray Perimeter Trail. It's a fantastic 7.2 mile loop around the town of Ouray, Colorado with approximately 1,600 feet of elevation gain! Dubbed "The Switzerland of America", Ouray has definitely earned this title with its beauty. There are numerous spots to start this hike located around the town if you don't have time to complete the full loop or your kids get tired and want to stop. Along the trail, check out the interesting Baby Bath Tubs, old miners' Potato Patch, the pipeline staircase, Henn’s Overlook, the Box Cañon high bridge, Cascade Falls and Cascade Creek bridge, plus many more features.
