SUMMER ACTIVITIES IN TELLURIDE
Telluride’s rich mining heritage left a legacy of intertwined jeep roads, providing access to some of the area’s highest mountain passes. Travel to Telluride’s high country to view beautiful mountain vistas, alpine lakes, waterfalls, wildflowers, ghost towns and mining ruins. From moderate overpasses to extreme roads, there is nothing like a 4×4 adventure ride on some of Colorado’s most breathtaking mountain roads! Tour Imogene Pass, one of the most popular mountain passes, connecting Telluride to Ouray or explore one of the many other off-road routes such as Bridal Veil Falls, Last Dollar Road, Ophir Pass, Alta Lakes or Black Bear Pass (one way East to West, advanced drivers only).
Mountain driving experience is highly recommended for all visitors venturing out on their own.

According to science, golf balls fly further at elevation. See for yourself on the Telluride Golf Course.
Telluride Golf Course
This par 71, 6,739-yard, 18-hole, mountain resort course is surrounded by the highest concentration of 14,000-foot mountains in the United States. Perched 9,300 feet above sea level, the elevation works to your advantage as Telluride’s thin air creates less resistance against the golf ball during flight, translating to 15 percent more distance. The course offers meandering fairways that wind through aspen groves and towering pines and beside mountain ponds and sparkling streams.
The Telluride Golf Course was constructed in 1992 and serves as a private club for members, as well as a public course for locals and guests.
- Course is typically open from May to mid-October (conditions permitting)

Soar above the beautiful Telluride valley during a tandem paragliding session with with USHPA certified instructors. It is an unforgettable experience you won’t soon forget! From an aerial perspective, details of every peak, valley, meadow and alpine lake come to life.
Every spring, Telluride’s substantial snowpack gives way to trickling streams and free-flowing rivers. From wild river rapids to a leisurely float, the Telluride area offers water sports second to none. The rafting season typically starts in late May and continues through October on the Colorado, Animas and Gunnison Rivers.
Experienced a variety of rafting trips down the San Miguel River, down the Dolores River, or through the famous Black Canyon of the Gunnison River.
Choose from half-day or full-day adventures and try one of the most refreshing activities in the region.
Take your own river trip by floating down the San Miguel River, which runs through town, in a tube.
The jagged peaks and extensive wall faces of the San Juan Mountains provide a variety of climbing and bouldering routes. Legendary climbers, from Lynn Hill to Charlie Fowler, have explored the area and helped put the San Juan Range on the map as a climbing destination.
From classic routes on Ophir Wall to moderate climbs on Pipeline to the Via Ferrata, the climbing is diverse and plentiful.
Warm up at Adventure Rock in Mountain Village. This man made climbing boulder is open daily during (weather permitting) from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the summer. You will find challenges for novices to expert climbers.
Horseback riding in the beautiful San Juan Mountains will be one of your most memorable Telluride experiences. Spectacular mountain vistas and wide open spaces will rejuvenate your spirit. With your choice of a chuck wagon dinner ride, overnight trip, or an afternoon horseback trail ride, find yourself on a guided horseback outing where you’ll be riding through aspen forests and alpine meadows. Giddy up!
The Mountain Lion is embodied by the title “Ghost of the Rockies”, for when in their presence they may be felt but are rarely seen or photographed. This magnificent golden cat has mastered the art of concealment by only hunting the remote broken canyons in the blackness of night.
Possessing cryptic senses of hearing and sight in combination with unmatched strength and speed makes the puma one of the least photographed of North Americas wild animals. But as winter snows blanket the favorite haunts of this American lion, the tracks of this great cat are revealed.
If a glimpse into the fiery-green eyes of one of these golden ghosts calls to you, then come ‘Experience the Edge’!
