Alta Lakes Ride
Alta Lakes offers some of the most stunning terrain in the Telluride area, and presents fun challenges for the experienced, single-track rider. We start near the Alta Lakes ghost town, at an elevation of about 11,000’. Soaring, craggy ridges ascend above us to the summit of Palmyra Peak, almost a half mile above.
The trails descend through a mix of tall coniferous forest, open meadows full of verdant ferns and glades of aspen trees. This is true single track, with flowy, rolling sections and a few short, steep climbs. It is absolutely beautiful country and super fun riding!
