One of the things we love about Telluride is that it's a walking town.  The whole town is a walkable square mile, with a beautiful river trail that runs the length of the valley, and is used year round. A free Gondola connects the town of Telluride with the town of Mountain Village, and a free bus service, the Galloping Goose, runs throughout Telluride on a regular schedule. In the winter the streets can be very icy and slick, and stout footwear is not only a mountain town fashion standard, but a necessity.
