This scenic ranchland and forest backroad is a great alternative to the paved drive between Ridgway and Telluride. You’ll see abundant wildflowers through early summer, great fall color and stunning mountain views. Enjoy camping, hiking and mountain biking. Plan plenty of time to visit Telluride, a great summer destination. Be prepared for congestion in town during frequent special events. Information can be found at the visitor center on the west end of town.
