Drive the San Juan Skyway from Durango to Ouray
Colorado › San Juan Skyway
Added by Kristen May
Enjoy breathtaking scenery, small mountain towns, and excellent wildlife viewing. If you have the time, there are plenty of hiking trails right off the road.
The drive from Durango to Ouray via Colorado 550 (The San Juan Skyway) is one of the most gorgeous roads in the country. The drive itself is worth your time, but if you have time be sure to make stops along the way at the many waterfalls, hiking trails, and lakes along the road. This drive passes the Continental Divide as well as many other extreme elevation changes, so make sure your car has good breaks and you pack warm clothing!
