Hiking is, by far, the most popular activity in the summer season. It’s no surprise, as there is enough terrain in the greater Telluride region to explore a different trail every weekend. Surrounded by an abundance of scenic nature trails, expansive jeep roads, as well as plenty of less-traveled paths, you can choose from a quick afternoon jaunt to summitting a 14,000-foot peak (14er) to a multi-day cross-country excursion.

Whenever exploring the outdoors in mountain locations, weather can change quickly, and we recommend hiking prepared. Please carry water, sunscreen, a first aid kit, appropriate trail maps, and extra layers for hikes of all durations. Bug spray is also recommended in the summer months.
With over 90 hikes, extreme ski routes, and historic walks around town, the Telluride Hiking Guide provides maps, descriptions and histories of the hiking trails of the area.
