First, read through the trail descriptions where we describe the route, trails, time, etc. We've assembled the area's most classic itineraries into 7-8 options that provide variability in terrain, difficulty level, pace, and scenery. Groups are more than welcome to modify our recommendations as there are certainly decisions that are easy enough for the group to make the day of. 

There is no official process for "signing up" for groups each day. All groups will leave from the Telluride rally point (Conoco Parking Lot) each morning and if a group happens to get too big we'll just ask the group to stagger their departures a bit. Each group can be no larger than 10 200's.  No exceptions.

To be absolutely clear, all you need to do is show up at the meeting spot and be ready to go by the time outlined below. That means you should try to get your coffee, food, drinks, gas, etc. ahead of time. That said, we may identify group leaders in advance so that you may be able to reach out to the group's leader in extenuating circumstances.
