“An important part of Durango”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This trail offers a great place to walk, bike, roller-blade, etc. I believe we were told there are 7 miles of trail in and around Durango. Great way to get outside and exercise from almost anywhere in Durango.

“Beautiful hiking trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This was a beautiful hiking trail, fairly rocky as you would expect, but the hike up the 2000 foot elevation brings you to an overlook that is truly beautiful at the red rocks and parts of Durango below! Worth the hike!!

“The perfect place to see the town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Running from near Walmart in the south, through town up towards 32nd St, the trail is the perfect place for walkers, runners, dogs, skateboarders and cyclists. You get the perfect vantage point to enjoy the river as well as being able to hop off the trail and into interesting attractions at various points. Watch out for the cafe at the museum, the informative signage and the entertaining public art dotted long its length.
