The Peaks Resort & Spa Diary

When planning a fall vacation in Telluride, one thing you can’t miss is the fall foliage. The Peaks Resort & Spa offers an ideal base for your adventure, and you’ll definitely want to have your camera ready to capture the stunning views all around. Here are some terrific ways to experience fall in Telluride, Colorado.

Telluride Arts Oktoberfest

Make your way to Town Park for the annual Telluride Arts Oktoberfest, a lively event filled with beer, games, live music, and plenty of exciting activities. Typically held in early October, the 2023 festivities are scheduled for October 7th, running from 2 to 7 p.m. Admission is just $10, offering excellent value for a fun-filled day.

Ride The Gondola

For an easy and breathtaking perspective of Telluride’s fall foliage, hop aboard the gondola. This eight-mile ride offers one of the highest vantage points in the area and promises stunning views that will leave you in awe. Best of all, it’s completely free and conveniently located just steps away from The Peaks Resort & Spa.

Horseback Riding

Experience the changing colors of fall from a unique vantage point – the back of a horse.
