This is a perfect, perfect late September hike. It was a crisp temperature and the fall colors were awe inspiring.

Amazing trail, would definitely do it again.

while this wasn't the most exciting hike I've ever done, I give it 5 stars because it was easily accessible and I enjoyed the change in scenery.
if you park a few blocks up Aspen st you don't have to pay for parking.
the trail switches through the woods and peaks over town with great views. then it descends into the woods and ends a couple blocks up from where the trail started (you'll have to walk back to your parked car)

Great trail, very close to town

Perfect loop to get started in Telluride

This is a great trail if you exercise regularly and are familiar with hiking. We really enjoyed it! Views are incredible and worth the hike! Water features and views of telluride from the hike were amazing. Highly recommend!!

Pretty tough climb. Make sure that you are acclimated to the elevation. The air is thin. The trail has spectacular views!

Great hike! Beautiful scenery and views.! Recommend starting on left side. Steep inclines for first third mile, but then easier to finish. Aspen, Fir, valley views, meadows and multiple streams. Has it all. Saw 4-5 other hikers.
We were told it's a locals favorite. Not easy though, so be sure you're in shape and acclimated. Good luck!

Excellent steady up hill and downhill. Two streams for dogs to drink on east side of loop.

Easy, pretty. River cuts thru the fissures
