Waterfalls, Telluride, Colorado
Concierge.com's insider take:
Because the San Juans are Colorado's steepest range and all that snowmelt has to go somewhere, Telluride boasts stunning waterfalls. The easiest to reach is 60-foot Cornet Falls, just a quarter mile up a steep dirt trail from the top of Aspen Street. Ingram Falls is also noteworthy: It's the huge, 125-foot white ribbon you can see clearly from town. Reach it by driving east on Colorado Avenue past the old Pandora Mill, and up the dirt road toward Black Bear Pass. Along the way, you'll round a switchback and see the most dramatic, Bridal Veil Falls, which plunges more than 300 feet, making it the tallest free-falling chute in Colorado.
