Top Things to do in Telluride this Summer

Southern Colorado’s box canyon beauty and celebrity hideaway, Telluride is a summer hiking, biking and festival mecca. Town itself is only eight blocks wide and twelve blocks long, but the surrounding San Juan Mountains are an endless playground for adventure seekers.

Frolic among some of the state’s most impressive 13,000- and 14,000-foot peaks with this summertime checklist.

Rest Easy

Gravity Haus partner property Madeline Hotel & Residences is the ideal spoil-yourself mountain basecamp. Gravity Haus members receive a complimentary welcome craft beer or glass of bubbly and up to 50 percent off nightly rates. Settle in to the luxurious ski chalet vibes, dine at the Timber Room and then head outside to nestle under sheepskin blankets next to the fire pit and look for shooting stars.

BIKE IT

Even total mountain bike newbs will feel at home in Telluride. The glorious San Juans serve up terrain for every level. After the snow melts, Telluride Ski Resort trails turn into easy flowing bike paths twisting through aspen groves and wildflower-dusted meadows. More advanced riders will appreciate the old mining roads and former railroad tracks perched above the box canyon. Road bikers can gain some serious elevation on the San Juan Skyway.

OFFROAD IT

Explore Southwest Colorado on a Telluride Outfitters Polaris Adventures RZR Tour. Over 100 miles of trails just minutes away from Telluride-Mountain Village. Tours run twice daily.

Join Telluride Outfitters for a wide variety of RZR Tours. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced rider, these experienced guides have an activity built to suit your taste. BONUS: Gravity Haus Members receive $20 OFF each RZR Half Day Tour.

CLIMB IT

Telluride’s Via Ferrata is a three-mile loop trail and a must-try for any thrill-seeking rock climber. Guides will take you along the newly legal technical climbing route, stepping across iron footholds 500 feet up on the sheer face of Telluride’s boxed canyon. Don’t worry — you’re harnessed in and guides are highly experienced.

HIKE IT

Incredible day hikes spur off in every direction from downtown Telluride. Classic local faves include Bear Creek Trail, Hope Lake Trail and Jud Wiebe Memorial Trail, a three-mile loop featuring a beautiful waterfall. No Telluride visit is complete without hitting Bridal Veil Falls. Find the cascading queen — Colorado’s highest free-falling waterfall — at the end of a 1.8-mile moderate trek and be sure to go the extra stretch to the top of the 365-foot falls for a rewarding view from Bridal Veil Creek Basin.

SIP & STROLL

Telluride was named a National Historic Landmark District in 1964, making for a serene stroll-and-stare setting. Take in the colorful Victorian-era homes and clapboard historic buildings in town and then ride the free gondola to Mountain Village where European elegance shines at 9,500 feet. Find your new favorite piece of jewelry or painting at one of the locally owned boutiques and galleries. Sip wine on a sunny patio or just people-watch from a bench on Main Street.

Tube the River

Rent inner tubes in town and take the Galloping Goose shuttle to Town Park where you’ll embark on your relaxing river float. Mellow mid- to late-summer water flows are prime for a laid-back day cooling off on the San Miguel River. For a little more action, stand-up paddle board on Alta Lakes or Woods Lake.

Find a Fest

Telluride throws one heck of a party. The festival hub has been hosting signature musical, cultural and culinary events for more than three decades. Join thousands of loyal fans making the annual pilgrimage to the Telluride Film Festival, Bluegrass Festival or Jazz Fest. In September, come for the brilliant fall colors and Blues & Brews festival. The beautiful box canyon acoustics never disappoint. 

Note: Check ahead for details regarding Telluride’s Summer 2021 Festival and Event Schedule. Attendance numbers may be limited due to COVID-related restrictions.
