The Bear Creek Trail is a very popular trail that leads right out of Telluride. Not the trail you want to pick if you’re looking for some solitude!
A relatively easy 4.5 mile out-and-back with a very nice waterfall and great views of the surrounding mountains. Some recent avalanche damage adds to the oohs and aahs for those not accustomed to remnants of the mountain winter.
We enjoyed the hike despite the throngs of people – some gabbing nonstop at high volume, others playing music on their bluetooth boomboxes. I guess nature isn’t that interesting…
