Part of the Church Camp Trail System.

Church Camp Loop is a popular trail route in the Church Camp/Falls Creek area. The loop begins at the main parking area (marked by a large boulder) and continues through the meadow.

At an intersection near the far end of the meadow, turn right up to the top of the hill, which continues to climb up to the north along the ridge. Church Camp then descends to an elusive waterfall on an old dirt road. From here, the loop continues back along the other edge of the meadow and back to the parking area.

Church Camp trails are within the mid-country trails area approximately 10-15 minutes from downtown Durango. This is a popular area for hikers, bikers and runners to adventure with dogs.
