Bridal Veil Basin

Telluride, Colorado

Spring is finally here, which means it’s hiking season. Trails above Telluride, CO, in the San Juan Mountains, will satisfy seekers of flora, fauna and mountains of majesty. You’ll pass Bridal Veil Falls -- the tallest free-falling waterfalls in Colorado, at 365 feet -- then follow former mining routes and pass the old Lewis Mill to get to this peaceful lake in Bridal Veil Basin. Breathe in the fresh mountain air, gaze over the surrounding red-hued peaks, and leave all your worries behind.
