“If you like a killer climb...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

...then this trail is for you. The climb is long and pretty rocky but worth it once you make it to the top.

“Wonderful scenery and not crowded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Hikes for all levels, plenty of wildlife and beautiful scenery. Walked with our dog early morning and met several like minded dog walkers and hikers. Good views of Durango.

“Had a blast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This place a little hard to find, but it was worth the trip. We had to call several time's to finally meet up with the guide but once we did we had a great time. We rode two hour's deep in the wood's and saw some beautiful lake's. Met some nice folk's from another state and alot of fun. The only complaint we had is they need to a little more organized as they were hard to meet up with.

“Good local place to get some exercise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Trailhead in town. Easy to park. Goes in at 6800' and summits at 8200'. BLM. Trail could be messy if wet. Forested with occasional views of the city. Early Summer mornings would be good.

“Fantastic Views of Durango and Easy Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This trail can be done by most people. It can also be done by those in wheel chairs. It has spectacular views of the entire Durango area. There is also abundant wild life that may be viewed depending on the time that you do this short hike.

The drive up the mountain is also spectacular!

There are also picnic tables where you can bring your own meal and just sit in the wonderment of this beautiful place.

If you are short on time, schedule this trail since you can see alot in a very short amount of time. You will be glad you visited this spot!
