The San Miguel River Trail is a short but enjoyable municipal pathway that runs through the heart of the town of Telluride and down along the San Miguel River. The San Miguel River trail is a perfect choice for families and beginner riders and those just getting used to the elevation in the Telluride area.
The San Miguel River Trail becomes singletrack once it has left the downtown area of Telluride and enters into the forest. The trail splits here into an upper and lower section of trail, which connect in a lolli-pop style loop before emptying back onto the San Miguel River Trail in the opposite direction.
Time To Allow:
The San Miguel River Trail is a multi-use area. Riders may encounter hikers, trail runners and other users along the way. It is important to understand right of way protocol when meeting other users.
Riders can jump on the San Miguel River Trail from any of the side streets in Telluride. In its entirety, the trail extends from Pandora Mill to Boomerang Road
