Dog-Friendly Activities in Telluride

Gather Vacations
| Colorado, Telluride

At Gather, we understand that your furry friends are integral to your life. And it is no secret that Telluride, CO, is replete with outdoor activities and dog-friendly locales for the whole family. 

Known for its world-class skiing and idyllic surroundings, we are proud to have representatives living and working in the Telluride community. We love dogs (who doesn’t), so have your back on Telluride dog-friendly travel tips!

  • Ride the Telluride Gondola
    Leashed pets are allowed in select gondola cabins between Telluride and Mountain Village, which are free to ride. Bonus points – the electricity utilized by the gondola is generated solely by wind and solar power! 
  • Hiking
    From Hope Lake Trail to Bridal Veil Falls, all the dog-friendly trails are located near town. Please keep summer temperatures and your experience level in mind when selecting a hike for you and your dog(s). However, we want to add that if you plan to take your dog anywhere, please pick up after them and follow a pack-it-in, pack-it-out mentality. 
  • Mountain Village
    Arguably the town hub for tourists, grab a pint or a bite while your pup eats some treats and enjoys some cool mountain water. 
  • Visit Ouray Dog Park
    While there is only one off-leash dog park in Telluride, Ouray Dog Park is a favorite of tourists and locals alike.
  • Stroll Around Town
    You’ll notice that Telluride is quite fond of dogs’ well-being. This being the case, you’ll see several watering stations and poop bag dispensers throughout the area.
  • ATV Adventures
    Yes, you read that correctly. Booking a private tour with Dave’s Mountain Tours ahead of time can ensure your dog is welcome to zip around the mountain roads.
These are simply a few dog-friendly options offered in the lovely mountain town of Telluride. So, stay with us and let’s go places together!
