If you are a beginner hiker, this trail is perfect! You get the views from the top without actually having to climb up! We parked near the golf course and went south, easy trail, watch out for bicyclists- they're crazy!

We found this trail while driving along Rim Drive. We parked the car and walked the trail. Great views of the town of Durango with benches where you can just sit and watch the city.

Nice campus to visit, I wish I could afford to teach and live there! We're guessing the faculty has to live elsewhere?
