Getting Here

Getting to Telluride

By car

Telluride is located in Southwestern Colorado on State Highway 145 in the San Juan Mountains. It takes under 3 hrs from Moab, 2.5 hrs from Grand Junction, and 6 hrs from Denver to drive to Telluride. All roads to Telluride are scenic.

By plane

Flying into Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) is often the most convenient but also often the most expensive way to get to Telluride which is serviced by Frontier and United Airlines. Most flights will have a layover in Denver. Another good, and often cheaper, option is to fly into Montrose (MTJ) from eight major cities across the United States! Once you arrive at the airport, it's a 66-mile drive to the town of Telluride. Many Telluride hotels provide free shuttle services. There are several s companies that also provide shuttles.

The least expensive option (especially for large groups) can be to fly into Grand Junction Regional Airport (GJT) and then shuttle to Telluride and then back from Moab. There are five different carriers that service Grand Junction.

Getting to Moab

By bike

Mountain Bike 215 miles of awesome singletrack and dirt roads, obviously the best way!

By car

Highway 191 runs through Moab. The city lies 40 miles south of Highway 50.

By plane

Limited daily flights are available directly into the Canyonlands Field Airport (CNY). Car rental service is available at the Moab Airport through Enterprise Rent a Car. Shuttle service is also available from the airport.

Getting to Gateway

By Car

Highway 141 runs through the very small town of Gateway. Driving time from Grand Junction is 1 hr 15 min, from Montrose it is 2 hrs, and from Telluride it is 2 hrs 15 min. The drive from either direction is stunning. Shuttles out of Grand Junction, Telluride, and Moab are available.

Getting to Durango

By plane

Fly to Durango-La Plata Airport. There are over a dozen flights daily from Denver International Airport and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. You can also fly in from over 300 other cities.

By car

Take Highways 160 or 550. Most roads to Durango are scenic.

Not many have been on the nonmotorized section of the Atkinson Bench trail after last year's fires. The trail is currently overgrown, but it is beautiful and well worth it for those looking for an adventurous remote ride. The 2nd part of the Atkinson Bench Trail is riding great!
