I love uphill hikes to keep me warm in the snow. Not overly difficult but you should be fairly fit. The views were amazing! Heart pumping uphill with lots of fun downhill to bring you back to town.

On our first full day in Telluride we considered trails of three, five, and seven miles described in the hiking brochure and decided to do the shortest one—the three-mile Judd Wiebe Trail. From downtown we walked uphill three to four blocks, stopping several times to rest and sip water, until we reached the trailhead. Getting to the trailhead took 25... More

From town elevation gain is circa 1200 feet. Excellent trail if you have limited time, circa 1.5 - 3.0 hours depending on pace and breaks. Several nice photo ops along the way.

This hike is great for those w/o a lot of time. A 3 mile loop that is easy to find & gives great views of town. Being near a creek is also refreshing.

Hiked this with 2 of my Boston friends while visiting Telluride. The first part of this hike up is a bit challenging - it was a bit steep and in the sun (it was warm too). So the heat may have made this a bit more challenging to me - we'd stop to rest in the shaded area's of the... More

The Jud Wiebe is a popular 3 mile hike you access on the south facing side of Telluride. The trail switchbacks up some 1200 vertical feet through stands of aspen, fir and spruce - the reward is some fine views of Telluride and the ski area across the valley. It's especially nice in the fall when the aspens change color... More

Not for sissies. Very great hike on the north side of Telluride...hike through beautiful aspen groves and woods which begins right in town. Quite a lot of vertical to get your heart pumping. A local favorite.

Because the trail head of Jud Wiebe is right off of Aspen St, it is easy to access from Telluride. It is a moderate hike that provided great views of Telluride. The lookout point is excellent. We were there during mushroom season, and saw lots of mushrooms along the trail.

This trail is accessible right from the edge of town, however, very little shade on sunny afternoon. More moderate than easy.
