Gorgeous trail with shade. So nice on a hot summer day. It follows the creek for a long time. The terrain is diverse and not too difficult for the first couple miles (haven't been past that YET). Love the creek for cooling off the dog and the humans can really appreciate the beauty!

The Colorado Trail is worth the effort it takes to hike at that elevation level. The views are spectacular, but be prepared for sudden weather changes.

I did segment 28, starting at the Junction Creek trailhead, all the way to Gudy's Rest. It took about 4 hours. The first part is along Junction Creek, so nice to hear rushing water all the way to the bridge. After the bridge, a series of switchbacks take you high above the creek to the Gudy's Rest landing where the... More

The Colorado Trail stretches from Durango to Denver - something like 450 miles in total. There's convenient access from any number of spots, the southern terminus is west on 25th Street from Durango, also known as Junction Creek Road. The trail itself is...awesome! You can ride a horse, mountain bike - or simply hike it for great scenery, solitude and... More

Great mountain biking, beautiful scenery. Connect from Dry Fork Trail about a 2 hour climb to the top.

Just what I was looking for. What amazing single track. Running in the lush beautiful forest next to crystal clear creek. This would have been fun to mountain bike lots of climbing but not too technical. Our experience from everyone we met on Durango's single track was so friendly. Happy Trails!

Some of the adventuresome rode the 18 mile mountain bike trail. They were all beaming when they returned with mud spray to show their feat.

This is a great hike or mountain bike ride. Starts out easy and mostly flat then allows for more challenging ups and downs then switchbacks up the mountain to beautiful views! The trail follows the river so even in hot weather there's opportunity to dip your toes and cool off. Your dogs will love it too if they're smart enough... More

Fields of Indian Paint Brush as far as the eye can see, small lakes, cascades, open high country. What more could one hiker want?
