As the spring season finally starts to wind down, we might be thinking of our next big vacation getaway. There is nothing better than hopping in your car and taking off on the perfect road trip. The early summer season is the perfect time to do such an event and Telluride should be your final destination. Telluride is an amazing vacation destination that offers a variety of exciting activities in the early summer season. Let us help you plan for the perfect early summer Colorado road trip to Telluride:
Ride Up to Gondola Village
The early summer season is the perfect time to see Telluride in all of its glory. Our winter and spring seasons see plenty of snowfall that covers the surrounding areas. With early summer comes warmer weather that melts the snow and provides clear views especially the higher up in elevation you go. Take advantage of the gorgeous weather and ride up to Mountain Village located up in the San Juan Mountains. Getting there is extremely easy, simply hop on the free gondola located in the center of Downtown Telluride. This gondola will take you up over 9,000 feet in elevation to reach Mountain Village. Here you will find various shops and restaurants to browse. Reaching Mountain Village is always a welcome item on your road trip itinerary.
Finding the Hiking Trails
Now that the snow has cleared up for the most part you will be able to find the once covered hiking trails. Telluride hiking trails will let you trek around the area and find some gorgeous views of the area. The melted snow also allows the local rivers and falls to be flowing at their best. With that combination in mind we recommend trekking down to Bear Creek Falls. Visitors will be able to start the trail just off South Pine Street in Telluride. Narrow cliffs and spacious open meadows align the trail for incredible views. Once you get to Bear Creek Falls you will see why it is one of the biggest natural attractions in the area. The water falls from over 1,000 feet high providing a spectacular sight. This is the perfect place too to relax with a picnic or soak up the early summer sunshine. Another popular trail is the Jud Wiebe Trail that features panoramic views of Bear Creek and Ajax Peak. You will be able to see the canyon bedrocks up close. It’s found on a 3-mile trail loop making it the perfect morning hike during your stay here in Telluride.
Drive the Million Dollar Highway
The views do not stop at the hiking trails found in Telluride. Since you have access to your vehicle it is well worth making the drive down the Million Dollar Highway. This stretch of highway has been named one of the most beautiful drives in the world. The name comes from the cost to build it, but the views make it more than worth it. Be careful driving down this winding road as the views can make it distracting when driving.
Find a Place to Grab a Drink
Since you have a few days here in town you might as well find the local watering holes. Telluride is home to Telluride Brewing Company that has won several awards since being founded in 2011. Visitors will be able to try out their fine selection of mainstay beers and even special seasonal offerings that rotate in throughout the year. Telluride Brewing Company is a must visit for craft beer enthusiasts and casual beer drinkers alike. Visitors can also find their favorite spirits and cocktails when they make a stop at Telluride Distilling Company. Hand crafted spirits made in the mountains just taste so much better. Don’t forget to grab bottles of your favorite brews and spirits to take back home whenever you visit these local favorites!
The Perfect Early Summer Vacation Rental
Having an incredible road trip to Telluride can be ruined if you do not plan for your lodging options in advance. Instead of booking a tiny hotel room where you have no room to move around, book one of our spacious vacation rentals.

Book one of our spacious homes that feature multiple bedrooms and bathrooms or pick out a cozy condominium that is located right in Downtown Telluride.
