Don’t let those cool mountain evenings fool you. Telluride’s summer days can pack a brutal heat index punch! But how can you find respite during your next Telluride vacation? Telluride Luxury is here to help you find the best ways to stay cool so you keep your cool!

1. Sitting Poolside

There is so much to do in Telluride from hiking to biking, climbing and fishing, but sometimes it’s just nice to take a load off. Spend your time cooling-off at one of many swimming pools that can be found in Telluride and Mountain Village. Head on over to Telluride Town Park community pool or enjoy the Peaks Resort & Spa’s indoor/outdoor pool.

2. Refresh with Waterfalls

Due to snow melt, the rivers and streams in the Telluride are offer cold, refreshing water for anyone needing a quick cool-down. Hands-down, the best way to cool down and take in the beauty of the canyon is by enjoying the various waterfalls in the area. Cornet Creek Falls is just a short hike from town, accessible from the Jud Weibe Trailhead. Or head-up the one-mile trail to Bear Creek Falls, a popular hike from town.

3. Paddle Boarding Haven

Paddle Boarding (or SUP boarding) is the newest activity to hit the Box Canyon. Head out with a guide or rent a few and go on your own adventure to Alta Lake, Trout Lake or just head down the San Miguel River in town! Here is a great list of outfitters and rental companies.
