Part of the Twin Buttes trail system.

Twin Buttes East is a trail with a gentle climb starting at the CDOT parking area. The trail follows the old dirt road then connects to the Twin Buttes trail, avoiding the first steep climb from the main parking area.

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.
