Trail Overview

Short trail off of Governors Basin trail in Ouray. It leads to some open meadows, some nice views and an old abandoned mine. Be aware there is another trail to the east on the map indicated with dotted lines. It is a VERY narrow trail with no areas to pass another vehicle and areas washing out, so best to return on same Sidney Basin trail to Governors Basin and avoid this trail.
