Lovely level river trail with access to downtown, trails, camping, restaurants, gondola, music festivals. Take a long hike or shorter stroll, watch kids playing....a delightful not-to-be-missed part of Telluride.

My daughters and I spent over two hours relaxing by the river, wading in it, playing with other families' dogs. The water was cold, even in mid-July, so we weren't up for tubing. But it's a lovely, free, leisurely way to unwind, especially after a day of hiking.

This river is beautiful and full of rainbow trout or so I'm told. Even if you aren't a fisherman this river is a joy to sit by and relax to the sounds of the ripples.

Walked along the river all the way into town. The walk was invigorating and felt great. Not challenging but definitely feel like I exercised.

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.
