Coonskin great views rocky parts some uphill. Telluride. Straight down rocky. More great views. Mountain bikes are allowed on the Coonskin Loop, but are not allowed to ride to Telluride via the Telluride Trail.

Coonskin is a great ski run. Sustained and steep, with not much traffic. Telluride Trail is a popular hike in the summer, but I have no idea why. It follows the ski area service roads, and you frequently get passed by ski area trucks. There are many other options both on and off the resort that are much more enjoyable.
