Part of the Animas Mountain Trail System.

Merv Trail is often coupled with the Swerve Trail and is just north of the popular Sailing Hawks Trail in Dalla Mountain Park. Swerve and Merve Trails connect the Animas Mountain Trail (main loop) to Dalla Mountain Park trails via a short and somewhat technical downhill.

A popular and iconic trail in Durango, Animas Mountain yields spectacular views of the Hermosa (to the south) and Animas (to the north) Valleys.

 Please note: The upper loop of Animas Mountain is closed for seasonal wildlife closures from December 1 to April 15.

Before you head out...

Please consider giving to Durango Trails!

The trails you’re about to enjoy wouldn’t exist without our year-round work to plan, build, and maintain them.

And we wouldn’t exist without your support!

Please consider financially contributing to help us continue to build and maintain great trails.

Great communities build great trails and great trails build great communities.
