Mountains surround the small town of Ouray, famous for its off-roading trails that cut through mountain passes and ghost towns.
The two-bedroom condominiums and roomy townhouses are located about 3/4 of a mile from Ouray Hot Springs Pool, a year-round public pool filled with more than a million gallons of natural-hot-springs water and healing minerals.
The world-renowned Ouray Ice Park, a manmade ice-climbing venue with more than 200 routes inside of the natural Uncompahgre River Gorge gorge on the edge of town, is just minutes away.
Newly built Elkhorn townhomes have full kitchens, private garages, decks with gas grills, and superior mountain views.
Ouray, Colorado: Former Mining Town Enclosed by Rocky Mountain Wilderness
The former gold- and silver-mining town of Ouray sits at a 7,760-foot elevation in a box canyon of southwest Colorado. Craggy, red-hued mountains surround the town on three sides, with Victorian-style homes, converted saloons, and other 19th-century buildings on the valley floor. So isolated is this rugged patch of backcountry that Butch Cassidy was able to hide here in 1889 after robbing a bank for the first time in nearby Telluride. Today, many visitors explore the wilderness via four-wheelers and hiking trails, including those found at Box Canyon Waterfall & Park. With suspension bridges, wildflower meadows, rare birds, and the 285-foot Box Canyon Waterfall, the park is filled with postcard-worthy scenery.
