Telluride Via Ferrata

Updated: Oct 19, 2018

Nothing spells adventure quite like a hike along the via ferrata (Italian for "iron path") overlooking the beautiful Telluride valley.


The hike can be mildly strenuous with a few technical sections. The entire route can be completed in just a few hours, or take your time, pack a lunch and enjoy the views of the valley below.


Specialized gear is recommended and can be purchased from a number of online retailers or in Telluride for adventurers that are already in town. Local guides are also available for less experienced hikers.


The route consists of a single hiking path along the cliff. Exposed sections are protected with a steel cable that's connected to the climbers harness.
