Twin Buttes Trail
Part of the Twin Buttes trail system.
Twin Buttes Trail is a popular, difficult route in the Twin Buttes trail system. This trail starts out with a steep, switchbacked climb out of the parking area, crosses an old road then climbs again through pinion and juniper. Twin Buttes Trail connects to the old railroad grade at a junction with Mid Traverse Trail.
Twin Buttes Trail System has moderate steady climbs, tight banked turns and classic single track. While a popular mountain bike location, it is also a multi-use trail. It is located off Hwy 160 in Durango. There is a dirt parking lot near a gas station on the North side of the road. The main (East) trailhead is here and the second access trail is on Lightner Creek Road (CR 207) which will lead you east towards the main entry.
