The scenic trails around the quant city of Telluride are ideal for a simple afternoon jaunt or an extended cross-country expedition. Pathways sprawl through North America’s greatest concentration of 14,000 foot peaks, around four inspiring waterfalls, and through some of the most picturesque landscape in the Rocky Mountains. Trails lead along lush forested hillside, through wildflower-filled meadows, and into long-deserted mining towns.
Hiking is Telluride’s most popular summertime activity, and with the wide variety of trails and mountain paths, you can explore new ground from June to October. The unique terrain of this mountainous landscape allows visitors to traverse the “fourteeners,” or the tallest peaks, without hiking aggressive trails.
Once you’ve visited the many alpine lakes and seen the grand views from high in Colorado’s mountains, you can head back to Telluride and indulge in a hot-stone massage, savor a gourmet meal, or just relax with a drink at a local pub. You are certain to have an unforgettable experience on these alpine trails, just don’t forget to bring your camera.
