Trekking in Telluride
With a number of scenic trails that begin right in town and offer access to hanging valleys and endless high alpine ridge lines, trekking in Telluride is a world class adventure,.
The area has a rich mining history, so there are a number of ghost towns and mining remnants nestled into the surrounding mountains. A day spent trekking in Telluride will leave you in 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 real 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 local natural history and will offer interpretations 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 variety of ecosystems. Our multi-day treks often travel on the extensive, well-traveled trail system in this area, but we also venture into lesser-traveled terrain to access seldom-visited areas.
