The Best Hiking Trails in Durango, Colorado

When you find a special spot, I encourage you to keep it a secret and only share it with the people you love

let people find it naturally!

I’m still trying to understand why and how I see the future. If you are concerned about a trail getting used to much talk about it. When you share trails naturally good things happen. This happens with word of mouth

Word of mouth creates the perfect flow

Pick a direction out of town and ‘go’!
Most hikes are moderate in difficulty and well marked. We have a few too many maps and could use some more karens. One of the best ways to find a good trail is to ask your guide

In true Durango style, let your intuition lead you. Here are some favorites that can handle people that don’t go outside
