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.

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.

Went for a run along the river trail. Very, very pretty and away from the roads. There are other trails near town, but this one is easy and quiet.
