River walk

This is an easy path to follow along the river right in town…always refreshing and beautiful. You can go to the Beaver Pond at the end of town.

The river is never far away and always welcome. Not too big, not too small, the San Miguel is great every day. The trail along the river is a daily must-do while staying in Telluride.

We caught a few fish on this river for the short amount of time we fished it. There are some really pretty places you can park on the side of the road and walk to.

A beautiful, clear river that runs through the backside of town, There is a trail to stroll next to it, or you can cross it as a gateway to Aspen lined trails and up to a waterfall.

This is a great trail for your first day in high altitude or before or after an early dinner. Pretty scenery, calming noises from the stream rushing past, and fun watching dogs and kids having fun in and around the water. The water is so clear and the rocks under the water are so pretty.

We went with local guide down San Miguel river for about 9-10 mile white water rafting trip. It was really pleasant in the afternoon with water being very cold and sunny temps around 88 degrees. Our group had 5 rafts and we all managed to get through with no one going overboard. This trip would be good for children as... More

I did the river was 3 times in less than 1 day. It is just so beautiful and relaxing. Chatted with many locals and watched them play with their dogs. It is a very easy walk that anyone can do - all level, packed down dirt.

take the river walk east of town for some great views and an easy walk that is one of the few that is not uphill in Telluride.
