Durango is famous for its trails. Whether it's natural surface trails, or hard surface trails - we've got what you're looking for! Durango is home to over 100 miles of natural surface trails within City limits, as well as over 10 miles of hard surface trails connecting neighborhoods and parks to our business districts. With public lands owned by the BLM and USFS surrounding City limits, our local trail systems connect our community to the beautiful forests and mountains surrounding downtown Durango.
