Absolutely delightful. Added a day in Telluride to my itinerary on a whim and turned out great. As it was mid June wasn't sure what would be open. Most of the mountain was closed, but all the bike shop guys said this would be a good choice. Ride the FREE gondola and then 2 miles of single track through aspens on a gradual descent. There were a few roots to keep you awake, but as long as you're paying attention, anyone could handle this, even on their first day at altitude. The ride back to town on the paved bike path was longer than I'd have liked, but it was totally worth it. If I wanted to get someone to fall in love with mountain biking, this is the trail I'd use.
