Follow the Telluride Trek Hiking Tour Online

Our last guided tour of the season, the Telluride Trek, departs on the first day of autumn, Friday, September 22, 2006. This is a very special trip for Ryder-Walker because it steals away from our normal menu of European itineraries and climbs into the mountainous region of our own backyard, the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado. Our head guide, Ken Fuhrer, freshly returned from Switzerland, will lead the tour. I will excitedly document the journey by camera and keyboard.

Our nine-day hiking circuit offers an exciting exploration of the region’s most spectacular trails. From remote valleys filled with golden aspen leaves, to high alpine passes replete with endless views, we’ll hike beneath the shadows of the resident fourteen thousand foot peaks as we thread our way through the most atmospheric villages of the San Juan range.

Our tour begins in the charming mining town of Ouray, home to a variety of world-famous hot spring pools and accentuated by the gorgeous scenery that earned Ouray the title, “The Little Switzerland of America.” We’ll pass through historic Silverton, home of the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway, and we’ll continue to Rico, a truly unchanged turn-of-the-century mining town boasting one of the finest gourmet kitchens of the region. We’ll soak our toughened bodies in the atmospheric hot springs at Dunton, a remote mining camp turned luxury retreat, before we finish the tour in cosmopolitan Telluride, with its eclectic galleries, shops and world-class amenities.

Registrations for the tour are now closed, but we invite you to join us online as we enjoy these golden days of autumn in Colorado. Even more, we hope that you’ll find the time to join us next year, whether at home or abroad.

Please contact Ryder-Walker Alpine Adventures for more information. We’d love to hear from you, so please drop us a line. See you on the trail.
