“great views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

You can hike up the Nature Trail which starts at the corner of E. 6th Avenue and 10th Street in Durango. At the top of the nature trail, you will be right beside the Ft Lewis campus chapel and the view is to die for!! Or, if you aren't up for a 20 minute hike, just drive up to the Fort Lewis Chapel and enjoy the view of town!

“User friendly trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The trail systems in Durango are outstanding, and this particular one is great for both mountain biking and hiking. The views of the town are awesome at the top.

“Beautiful views of Durango and the Animas River valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Close to town, easy to find and WOW what views! Nice for a bike ride or a walk/hike on the road or trail. Bring a snack and water if you're on foot. I biked it and it was almost better to walk as I was stopping often. Worth the time to check out

“Beautiful views of Durango”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

If you have a car while in Durango, take the time to drive the Rim Road and stop along the way to soak in the amazing vistas. the college itself is quite pretty and the grounds are gorgeous.
