Located at the summit of Telluride’s highest point, Palmyra Peak, at 13,320 feet, Senior’s run is not for the faint hearted. Not only is it high atop the mountain, but you also have to hike along a narrow ridgeline to get there, meaning the challenge begins before you even arrive at the run. Once you’ve navigated your way to the tippy top, be sure to catch your breath before catapulting yourself between rocks down a 52-degree gully. After you survived this steep run, you’ll end up back in the Black Iron Bowl with the rest of civilization. You might need a nap or a stiff drink after crossing this off your bucket list.
