Being outdoors in Durango is a not a calculated choice; the town has so many things to see and explore that there is no reason for you to be inside a building. There are many trails around town for bikers and hikers. Just to the east of the historic downtown is the Rim Trail or the Campus Loop. The trail circles the campus of Fort Lewis college and climbs up a tiny hill which overlooks the town of Durango. This trail goes on for 3 miles and connects the college campus with the Lion’s Den or the Chapman Hill Trails. Throughout the trail, you will see the panoramic views of Durango Town, the Animas River and the San Juan National Forest.
