The Peaks Resort & Spa Diary

Some of the best sights to see in the United States can be found in Colorado. The best way to see some locals is in and around Telluride on these hiking trails and scenic viewpoints. It’s easy to see incredible sights from the comfort of your room in The Peaks Resort & Spa. Here’s a quick reference guide for some of the best hiking trails for you to see the most beautiful peaks and sighs near and in Telluride.

Bear Creek Falls

This is a popular trail for a good reason. The Bear Creek Preserve Trailhead will lead you to the gorgeous falls through thick Aspen trees and grassy meadows. The trail is more than two miles long and will take you 1,000 feet in elevation too.

Telluride & Mountain Village Gondola

If you can’t or don’t want to walk to see some great views of the area, one option available to you is the Telluride and Mountain Village gondola. This gondola is part of the area’s public transportation and offers impressive panoramic views. It’s also a free trip. It’s a beautiful experience no matter the time of year.

Alta Lakes

The Alta Lakes are a series of mountain lakes that help make up the Uncompahgre National Forest. The high mountains (Bald Mountain, Silver Mountain) mirror the lake waters perfectly. It’s an incredible sight to see during the summer as the white snowy mountain peaks contrast wonderfully with the lush green shores of the lake.
