Guidelines

The groomed nordic trails at Ironton Park were developed by the Ouray County Nordic Council (OCNC), in cooperation with private landowners, the U.S. Forest Service, the Colorado Department of Highways, Ouray County and the City of Ouray.

 

Use of these trails requires your cooperation…

 

Please stay on the trail.  Private property is located throughout the system.  Staying on marked trails at all times is essential for your safety.  Venturing off may be trespassing and jeopardizes trail use for everyone.

OCNC and owners of the property assume no risk or liability for use of the trails.  Users assume all risks.

 

Non-Motoized Use Only
No Snowmobiles
Users Take Responsibility

 

Please be considerate of others.  Use caution; yield to uphill traffic; don’t disturb any building, plant, tree, animal, mine tailings or equipment; respect private property; pack out trash.  No camping is allowed.

 

User Safety

  • Safety has been a high priority in laying out trails, but conditions do change.  You may encounter new obstacles, bumps, branches, holes, wires – Please be alert!
  • Be prepared for rapid changes in weather or unexpected circumstances.
  • Keep your group together; don’t let someone lag behind and get lost.
  • Ultimately you are responsible for your own safety.  Trails are not patrolled.  Use at your own risk.

LEAVING THE TRAIL CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS – STAY ON THE TRAILS!
