Telluride is a precious, gem of a town nestled into a box canyon at 8,750 feet. For all practical purposes, the action takes place within an area that is 5 blocks wide and 8 blocks long, making it is perfectly pedestrian. The Mountain Village sits above Telluride and is connected by the free Gondola. Once in Mountain Village, walk down the steps and voila, you are in the core. The core is where you will find restaurants, shops, and pedestrian plazas. For guests staying in the Mountain Village, Dial-A-Ride service can transport you from the Gondola to your accommodations. Below are the town maps and trail maps for activities.
