Trailwork Updates

Durango Trails Working on Animas Mountain

Working with our land management partners at the Bureau of Land Management, Durango Trails has been hard at work completing trails at Animas Mountain. The BLM fire crew cleared the lines and the Durango Trails crew has been busy installing grade reversals, outslope as well as drainage features, and finish work on the new construction.

Logging Operations in Log Chutes

The USFS is doing a fuels thinning project in Log Chutes. The entire trail remains open.

Here are some specific details directly from the contractor: The contractor will be camping in the area above the camping closure past the overlook and traveling down to the site everyday 6:30ish.  There should be a barrier at the intersection of Logchutes Two and the JC creek road.

Welcome to the Durango Trails Rx!

Your prescription to the outdoors is a 17 day trail challenge! Challenge yourself to see how many of Durango’s trails you can complete between now and October 5th!

The Durango Trails Rx is an opportunity for runners, walkers and mountain bikers to experience the vast array of trails that Durango Trails has spent the last 30 years planning, building and maintaining.

The event is not a race but rather an opportunity to learn about the variety of trails in our area, help promote Share the Trails ethics and realize one’s connection to the outdoors as a way to improve physical, mental and social well-being.

Register to participate, then start checking off the trail segments you complete! We’ll update everyone’s progress every Tuesday and Friday on our leaderboard above. Make sure to have all of your segments completed and checked off by 8:00 am on October 5th!

A dozen segments to complete!

To complete the Durango Trails Rx in full, you’ll need to complete 12 different segments of trails in the following areas: Horse Gulch, Overend, Animas Mountain, Grandview, Dalla Mountain Park, Twin Buttes, the Colorado Trail, Log Chutes, Missionary Ridge, Coal Bank, and Molas Pass.
