Year-End Giving

Support Your Local Trails this Season

Give to our year-end campaign

Thank you for sharing the area trails with us this year.

During this unprecedented time, trail usage has increased by more than 40 percent. The increase in trail use has necessitated not only more trailwork, but more funding for that work.

Please consider showing your appreciation for our trails and the enjoyment they bring with a year-end gift to Durango Trails. We hope you will join your fellow trail users in increasing your typical annual contribution so that we can continue delivering extraordinary outdoor experiences in these challenging times.

In response to COVID-19, we used the following to educate the trails community about safe trail use: custom trailhead signage; social media and website updates; PSAs; and a five-part learning video series.

Countless people of all ages have benefited from being outside and enjoying the area’s special places that can only be accessed by trails. Please help us ensure that our area trails continue to provide those connections which contribute to our area’s physical, mental, and social well-being.

Please consider giving to Durango Trails!

The trails you’re about to enjoy wouldn’t exist without our year-round work to plan, build, and maintain them.
