The Peaks Dog Program
When we say we're dog-friendly, we're not just pawing for attention. The Peaks Resort and Spa offers pooches their own bed, gourmet treats, water bowl, and discounted spa(w) treatments, while they breathe fresh mountain air and enjoy the scenic views from their hotel room. Owners can lounge with their pets around the property or stretch their legs and enjoy a hike on any one of Telluride’s scenic and pet friendly trails.
If your dog’s a little sore after hiking around the mountain trails, sign him up for a treatment at the Soggy Dog Day Spaw, located on property. Followed by a nap in his own personal bed, he’ll be feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Simply call to reserve his treatment 970-728-6800 ext 6221 or for more information visit SoggyDogTelluride.com
The Peaks and Second Chance Animal Shelter
The Peaks Resort and Spa believes that pets are important members to a family, which is why we are a proud partner and suppoter of the area's humane society, Second Chance. Second Chance Humane Society has been working with the Telluride, Ouray and San Miguel County communities and beyond since 1994 to address the needs of homeless pets of this region.
The Peaks Pet Pics Contest
Don’t forget to document your family vacation with photos. Snap a pic of your pooch and post it to our Facebook page at Facebook.com/PeaksResortSpa At the end of the season we will feature our doggie guests and select one pup who will win a grand prize for their featured photo.
For hiking only and beginning at Station St. Sophia, this two-mile trail drops 1,000 feet to Station Mountain Village and the Mountain Village Center. With its valley views and peaceful switchbacks throughout the aspen forest, and benches to rest while taking in the surroundings, this trail is a local favorite. Do watch for a fork in the trail about 0.2 miles below the radio tower as the route to the right is more rocky and steep.
Accessing this trail from either the Town of Telluride or off Coonskin Loop Trail in the Town of Mountain Village makes no difference: either way its 2.6-miles of steep, rocky terrain only accessible on foot. NO BIKING ALLOWED! This trail follows a dirt ski service road from Station St. Sophia 1,800 feet down to the Town of Telluride. Vehicles may be encountered.
West of Station Telluride, this popular and pleasant two-mile trail intersects with the Boomerang Trail and has a graded natural surface along the San Miguel River. Once at this intersection, you can cross the Valley Floor and then follow the paved Bike Path east into the Town of Telluride or west to Highway 145. The River Trail follows the San Miguel River upstream for two miles, past Telluride Town Park, and on to the Idarado Legacy Trail which leads to the end of the canyon and Bridal Veil Falls.
Bear Creek Trail
One of Telluride's most popular outings, the Bear Creek Trail is accessed from the south end of Pine Street. A steady climb through the 380-acre Bear Creek Preserve leads to the upper Beach Creek Falls, where hikers can connect to the Wasatch Trail and Bridal Veil Basin. With its dramatic vistas and alpine scenery, the Bear Creek Trail is a consensus favorite amongst the many Swiss breed dogs in town.
Jude Weibe Trail and Cornet Falls
From the north end of Aspen Street, proceed up the dirt trail. To reach Cornet Falls, hike straight up the canyon (rather than crossing the bridge) and follow the creek .25 miles to the falls. To hike the Jud Weibe trail, proceed left across the bridge span
