Log Chutes 1
Part of the Log Chutes trails system.
Log Chutes 1 is a difficult, 4.8-mile “lollipop-style loop” trail. Log Chutes 1 is the first trail from the Log Chutes trailhead and provides access to Log Chutes 2, Log Chutes 3 and Westview Loop. Log Chutes is a multi-use trail located just above the Colorado Trail Trailhead at Junction Creek in Durango. Log Chutes trails cross Junction Creek road as we move from Log Chutes 1 to the Westview loop on the road so watch for cars.
