Part of the Log Chutes trails system.

Log Chutes Downhill trail is one of Durango’s only dedicated downhill trails. This ride is typically shuttled from an upper section of Junction Creek Road. Watch out when driving the road and expect conditions to be dusty in the summer. Log Chutes Downhill is approximately 1.4 miles in length and descends over 1,000 feet to an intersection where it meets Westview Loop and Log Chutes 3. 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.
