Telluride and Mountain Village

Telluride Colorado

Telluride Colorado is a turn of the century mining town that is now a National Historic District. Located in the San Juan mountains at the base of Box Canyon,Telluride has some of the most amazing views anywhere. It is surrounded by 13,000' peaks, 3000 acres of National forest to explore and the San Miguel River that runs through town. It may take some time for visitors to get acclimated to the altitude. The town of Telluride sits at 8,750' and its sister town of Mountain Village sits at 9,450'. The two towns are connected by the "free" year-round gondola. It takes just 12 minutes to make the trip on the gondola and is faster than driving,so its best to leave the car in Telluride. There are no stop lights in Telluride and the town is only a mile long, making the visit an easy walk to shop and eat. There are only about 2,000 full time residents so you won't get overwhelmed with crowds. The climate is great. Summers can be expected to run into the 70's for highs and 30's in the winter.

Summer Fun

Trout Lake - 12 miles south of Telluride

Let the guides at Telluride Outside High Country Outfitters take you on a fly fishing adventure in one of the many rivers and lakes around Telluride. The San Miguel river is rated as "Free Flowing". A status only 5% of the rivers in America can claim. While the main river holds predominately Rainbow and Brown Trout, the headwaters and side creeks are home to Brookies and Cutthroats. The summer and fall months provide wonderful dry fly fishing. However, the river is accessible year-round, with often the largest fish being caught in the spring, prior to runoff.
