For a breathtaking, unique adventure, look no further than the Telluride Via Ferrata. The route precariously traverses rock faces up to 600 feet above the forest below, exhilaratingly exposed in sections that would be impassable without the steel cables and scattered steel holds along the way. The Telluride Via Ferrata provides unmatched views of Bridal Veil Falls (the highest free falling waterfall in Colorado) the town of Telluride far below, and the surrounding peaks of the San Juan mountains.  Think of it as a hike along a sheer cliff, with steel rungs to hold onto when the going gets steep.  

Mountain Trip is Telluride's only guide service accredited by the American Mountain Guides Association and when accompanied by our highly trained and experienced guides, the Telluride Via Ferrata is a perfect adventure for visitors of a wide range of abilities, albeit not particularly for those who have a fear of heights.

Mountain Trip will provide you with bottled water and snacks such as granola bars upon request, but ideally bring your own water bottle. We suggest you wear comfortable clothing appropriate for a half day hike on the day of your trip. It is important that all guests wear closed sole shoes with good traction, such as trail running shoes or light hiking boots. If there is a chance of precipitation, please add a light rain jacket to your kit. If you'd like to bring a daypack to carry extra items, please do so. We will have some light daypacks to loan out, should anyone want to borrow one. Definitely bring a camera or smart phone, as the views and setting is stunning!

Gratuity is never expected, but always appreciated. If you had a great time and feel that your guide did an exceptional job, a small demonstration of your appreciation would be welcome. Rough guidelines on gratuity would be roughly 10-15% of the trip cost.
