Part of the Log Chutes trails system.
Westview Loop can be accessed where Log Chutes 3 crossed Junction Creek Road. This “lollipop-style” loop is rated as difficult, and gains 660 feet in 3 miles. 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.
