Hiking & Climbing
The San Juan Mountains surrounding Telluride are the perfect setting for your alpine vacation. Wildflowers are at their height beginning in early July. Year-round mountaineering, trekking, and climbing schools provide backcountry and technical skills for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels. And there are hiking trails of every difficulty from town and more options just a short drive from downtown Telluride.
Remember to always arm yourself with plenty of water, snacks and a good raincoat. Even the sunniest mornings can turn into stormy afternoons, so venture out prepared into the San Juan Mountain backcountry!
