Take in Scenic Views at These Durango Hiking Trails

Hiking is a great way to enjoy the sounds and smells of nature. There are days we may not want to leave the coziness of our Durango apartments, but it’s important to make time to head outdoors and take in the sunshine when you can. Luckily, there are some fantastic hiking trails all around the area. Why not check some of them out?

Skyline Trail

Skyline Trail is part of the Fort Lewis College trail system. This trail winds up to Raider Ridge, a viewpoint that gives you a 360-degree view of Durango! The trail itself is 3.1 miles long and is in the "advanced" category for hiking, so be careful, make sure you have everything you need, and follow the trail exactly. It's also a good idea to bring a friend that's a little more experienced in hiking with you!

Overend Mountain Park

Overend Mountain Park is a system of trails near our apartments in Durango. There are fourteen trails within the system, including Star Wars Descent. If you're a Star Wars fan, this is an adventure you can’t miss with sweeping turns as you descend down. 

Animas Mountain

One of Durango's most iconic trail systems is the Animas Mountain Trail System. The main trail of this system is called the Animas mountain loop, which gives you a fantastic view of the Animas Valley and the Hermosa Valley. You can go sightseeing while getting some exercise at the same time!

After hiking some of these trails near our Durango apartments, reward yourself with a cold drink at one of these craft breweries.
