Part of the Fort Lewis College trail system.
Durango’s SkySteps officially opened in June 2017, creating a town to sky connect from Durango to the Fort Lewis College campus, home of the Skyhawks.
The stairway, which extends over 500 steps and gains over 250 feet in elevation along the Nature Trail in Durango, makes for a wonderful walking route, commute to the college or training steps right in town.
In partnership with the City of Durango and Fort Lewis College, the steps were built entirely by Durango Trails volunteers and crews. Durango’s SkySteps are amongst various urban stairs that have been long recognized as fitness and tourist destinations, including the Manitou Incline near Colorado Springs, known as one of the most popular and challenging hikes in the area, and the iconic Santa Monica Stairs in Los Angeles.
