Telluride sits along the scenic San Juan Skyway, a 233-mile loop that connects a variety of iconic attractions in Cortez, Durango, Silverton and Ouray. From Telluride, the scenery along the San Juan Skyway is lined with mountain landscapes, vast ranchland and mountain passes. Telluride is also a short drive from Moab, Utah, home of Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. Colorado's Mesa Verde National Park and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park are  just a day trip away as well.

The Telluride/Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ), 65 scenic miles away, is the primary airport for Telluride. Several transportation companies provide service from Montrose to Telluride. Rental cars are also available at the Telluride/Montrose Airport.
