The Peaks Dog Program
With miles of stunning trails, pet friendly shops and designated "puppy parking" right outside the hotel, The Peaks Resort and Spa in Telluride is a perfect place to spend a vacation in the Rockies with your canine companion. A $75 non-refundable cleaning fee applies for each reservation. There's a two dog maximum per room, not to exceed 100 pounds. An additional $25 additional non-refundable fee applies for the second dog – if applicable. Dogs are allowed in hotel rooms only. No pets allowed in Penthouses or See Forever Units.
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
