Explore a Quiet Trail

Unlike the ski lifts, the trails around Durango won’t close at 4pm. Rather, the setting sun will provide a beautiful backdrop to an untouched landscape. Slow down your daily pace when you cross-country ski or snowshoe the trails. Follow the Colorado Trail up to Gudy’s Rest for a beautiful panorama of the national forest, wind through the Animas Mountain Trail for a birds-eye view of town or escape the bustle by following the neighboring creek of the Vallecito Reservoir.
