“Serene Shortcut”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Since we were close by the river, we frequently used the groomed hiking path running alongside the San Mig to move around town. The sound of running water, lush undergrowth, and interesting houses to look at made each walk along the river quite nice.

“Great Trails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We walked and biked the trails that go along the river both ways. Either way you go it is beautiful. Going toward the falls is more uphill and going out of town is flatter- easier to bike!

“Lovely winding river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Very peaceful to take a walk along the river. You will share your walk with bikers and dog walkers as well so it is a really nice experience.
It is low this season due to the drought but still very pretty.

“Scenery almost as beautiful as Switzerland's Lauterbrunnen Valley!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I love, love Switzerland, so comparing Telluride favorably is saying a lot! I ran several mornings along the trail, from the gondola down to the end of the path by the waterfall, and also biked the opposite direction (Valley Floor path). Both ways were gorgeous! The path is also a wonderful place for a good walk & talk. Don't miss it if you are in Telluride!

“best fly fishing ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

had a few days while in Telluride to dry-fly fish on the San Miguel - it was crazy good this time of year - lots of fish with little effort. Nothing huge but just a lot of fun. There are a few well-qualified outfitters in town if you wanted to set up a guided excursion but i had my own equipment and just headed out on my own - easy to find fishable waters.
