You can spot locals and tourists alike floating down the San Miguel River on summer afternoons. There are no guides or lifeguards, so be aware of your surroundings! (It is recommended to wear a helmet and proper water shoes.) Start at the Town Park entrance, and get off at the Gondola, or near the Shandoka Parking Lot. Tubes can be bought at ACE Hardware on Colorado Avenue.
Telluride’s Valley Floor is the large section of protected land on the right side of the road as you drive into Telluride. On August 4th, 2009 the Telluride Town Council approved the Telluride Valley Floor Conservation Easement, making the Valley Floor “Forever Wild.”
Perfect for running, fishing or hiking on the San Miguel River Trail, cross-country skiing in the winter or taking photographs of elk and other wildlife.
