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!

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

I picked up the trail via Little Molas Lake off highway 550. We didn't get to far but you really don't have to in order to get magnificent views. The first section is a good uphill and then levels off. Depending on the time of day you have to make way for mountain bikers but most were friendly and not... More

an awesome hike for those not wanting to travel out of town. It can be accessed right off north main street, giving you great views of town and north over the Animas Valley. You can take a quick 1 1/2 hour loop or a full 3 hour loop

Durango sits at the southern terminus of the Colorado trail. Take 25th street west for 3.5 miles to the trailhead. Park just past the cattle guard or go another mile to the upper parking area. The trail follows junction creek for a couple of miles until it starts up to Gudys rest. Or you can drive the dirt road up... More
