The valley floor in Telluride: it's not just for prairie dogs anymore. The Telluride Nordic Association now grooms and maintains an elaborate trail system on the valley floor, including seasonal river crossings at various points to access the western end of the valley near Lawson Hill.
We at TIO feel very fortunate to have access right across the highway from our house. We have watched the valley elk herd, seen coyotes hunting, and now that we have snow cover, lots of skiers enjoying the trails outside our window.
The Nordic Association is a non-profit; your donations make this great amenity possible. You can donate on the TNA website. Other trails maintained by TNA are in the Town Park, Priest Lake and Trout Lake.
