At the west end of the River Trail
, while remaining on the valley floor, take a left-hand turn (south) up a steep dirt trail through the national forest, ending on the north end of Country Club Drive in the Mountain Village. From here, it is a short hike through the Mountain Village Center to the gondola, where you can catch a free ride back into Telluride. The trail is 1 mile one-way.
