Park your home on wheels in the Valley View Parking Area and hike (or bike!) the remaining 1.8 miles to the falls at your leisure. There’s a ton to explore in the Telluride surrounding area, and no shortage of unique public and private campsites to choose from.
Garden of the Gods
This place rocks! Garden of the Gods is a designated National Natural Landmark near Colorado Springs, CO. The red rock formations were created during a geological upheaval along a natural fault line millions of years ago. There’s archaeological evidence that prehistoric people have been visiting (and camping!) here since as early as 1330 BCE! Though modern visitors have no need to seek shelter from the rocky outcroppings, Garden of the Gods still woos nearly 2 million visitors a year with its rich and diverse natural landscape, 21 miles of trails, and limitless opportunity for adventure.
