The town of Telluride is the county seat and most populous town of San Miguel County in the southwestern portion of the U.S. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Yankee Boy Basin and Fourmile Falls Trail. Get in touch with nature at Bear Creek Falls and North Clear Creek Falls. Get out of town with these interesting Telluride side-trips: Ouray (Baby Bath Tubs Trail & Climbing Tours) and Wheeler Geologic Area (in Creede). And it doesn't end there: cruise along San Juan Skyway, take in the dramatic scenery at Bridal Veil hike, look for gifts at Telluride Trappings and Toggery, and get to know the fascinating history of Black Bear Pass.
