Telluride is known for its world-class skiing, cultural events, and natural beauty. Nestled at the end of a box canyon, surrounded by jagged 13,000 and 14,000-foot peaks—this tiny, yet charming, community boasts endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Dozens of trails, ideal for hiking and mountain biking, are easily accessible from town and allow visitors to explore the forests, fields, and high country of the San Juan Mountains—the longest mountain chain in the Rockies. With so many outdoor recreation options, visitors to Telluride have an enviable problem, where should they start? This map is a combination of a standard trail map on the front with a helpful guide on the back that has a selection of recommended hikes, from the moderate 1.6 mile Ridge Trail to the strenuous 2,900 foot climb up to Liberty Bell Basin. Each selected trail includes a brief description, specs such as elevation gain and length as well as a detailed elevation profile to track your progress up and down the numerous peaks and valleys. Each Local Trails map includes detailed trail maps at 1 inch = 1/2 mile. At this scale every turn of the trail is clearly visible and when covering steep terrain the contours are clearly visible. In addition to the standard features like trailheads and parking areas the maps also show difficulties for each trail segment so you can tell if the entire trail is moderate or if there is only a single short section of difficult on an otherwise easy trail.
