Wheelin' Around

Mountain bikers of all levels can challenge their abilities during their Telluride vacation on dramatic vertical terrain or take a relaxing tour through the breathtaking scenery of the Uncompahgre National Forest. Old mining roads and single-tracks in the region climb 9,500 feet to historic sites and rugged mountain beauty. The San Juan Hut System (overnight facilities) connects Telluride to Moab, Utah with 206 miles of varied terrain. Phil's World near Cortez, CO, about an hour from Telluride, also offers great trails for mountain biking.

There is no better way to see Telluride in the summer than by bike. Telluride Sports offers both cross country mountain bikes for those looking to hit the trails and hybrid cruisers for those who want to pedal around town or the river trail. For a real thrill take one of our Trek Session 8 downhill bikes and hit the trails off the top of the Gondola. We have partnered with Telluride Sports' bike rental subsidiary to offer our guests a 20% discount on rentals.  For more information, call 970-728-3134.

Other Options

RIVER ROADS: Twelve miles west of Telluride on Hwy. 145, several river roads offer beautiful scenery and easy to intermediate terrain. The frontage road along the San Miguel River is an easy dirt stretch that meanders down the canyon between the Silver Pick and Fall Creek Roads. Fall Creek Road climbs gradually for four miles along Elk Creek to Woods Lake campsite. Silver Pick Road is a challenging climb to the top of Wilson Mesa.

ROAD BIKING: The San Juan Skyway, one of the most scenic drives in the country, is also popular with road cyclists. Hwy. 145 south out of Telluride is uphill and strenuous. Preconditioning is advised before undertaking any lengthy bike trips from town.
