Day Trips

Listed below are some of our favorite day trips from Telluride. You can choose to make 2 trips in a day: for example, trips to Montrose and Ouray, or a single trip to the 4 corners or Mesa Verde. All are within 3 hours driving distance from Telluride.


Mesa Verde

Mesa Verde National Park, located between Durango and Cortez and only 2.5 hours from Telluride, is rich in history with spectacular views stretching over one hundred miles. The National Park was established to preserve archaeological sites built by the Ancestral Puebloans dating back to 550 A.D. These inhabitants lived in the Four Corners region of Colorado for over 700 years. Spend hours looking at more than 4,700 archaeological sites including 600 cliff dwellings, pueblos, masonry towers, farming structures, and much more. Take a peek into the past through the lens of one of the best preserved and most notable National Parks of its kind in the United States. But that’s not all: Mesa Verde National Park has numerous hiking trails, beautiful camping grounds, heritage foods and cuisine, Native American handcrafts and shopping, and more.


Million Dollar Highway

U.S. Route 550 runs from Bernalillo, New Mexico to Montrose, Colorado. Boasting one of the most beautiful, jaw-dropping drives in the entire nation, this stretch of road is frequently called the Million Dollar Highway. The Highway is known for its mountain passes, high elevation, amazing scenery, steep cliffs, and other various adventures: this drive is not for the fainthearted, but it’s worth every mile! The stretch between Silverton and Ouray offers you the best opportunity to experience the amazing scenic highway and stop over in nearby Telluride. Enjoy sites of the Uncompahgre Gorge, Idarado Mine, Animas River, San Juan National Forest, Haviland Lake, Elektra Lake, Twilight Peak, Red Mountain Pass, and many more “million dollar” views that epitomize the American West.
