Trekking in Telluride – Southwest Colorado
The Telluride area is a destination for trekking, with a number of scenic trails that begin right out of town and offer access to hanging valleys and endless high alpine ridge lines.
The area has a rich mining history and there are a number of ghost towns and mining remnants nestled into remote areas that leaves one to awe at what the early miners accomplished with minimal tools and resources in this rugged terrain.
Our day treks range from half-days to full-days and are crafted to give visitors a great Colorado experience with tremendous views, the opportunity to see wildlife, and our amazing high alpine wildflowers. We offer many different treks and options for hikers of all abilities. Our guides are trained in the local natural history and offer interpretation as you trek through spectacular settings.
Our overnight treks take from 2-7 days as we hike across large swaths of uninhabited mountain terrain where few people venture. We have access to some remote corners of the San Juans that offer a great variety of ecosystems. Our multi-day treks often travel on established trails, but we will also venture into off trail terrain to access seldom-visited areas. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with great food for peak performance throughout the trip.
