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.

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.

We were lucky to be staying riverside and it was an easy walk to the gondola and lift 7 although the riverside. Caution may be needed at night after a few drinks in the winter, could be easy to slip in!!!

I walked along this hiking path which follows the San Miguel River. This was a nice outing on one of the days that we did not ski. Many other people were out enjoying the trail as well. Some people were walking their dogs. I am a bird watcher and found several interesting birds in and around the river including American... More

The San Miguel follows the highway for miles on the way to Telluride. It is a popular fly fishing stream, and has spectacular colors in the fall.

A great spot to stroll along the river with dogs &/or kids to enjoy the incredible views! Easy access to restaurants, shops & pubs on the side streets.
