“A technical and rocky climb with wonderful views of Durango and North Animas Valley”
Jason Lampe on Jul 21, 2013
Getting There     GPX File     Print
3.3 Miles Singletrack Type 1,492’ Ascent -48’ Descent 6,722’ Low 8,175’ High
Closed fall to spring. Check locally for dates.
The ~3 mile rocky and technical climb begins at the parking lot noted, and is quite steep in some places. There are plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the views of Durango and the North Animas Valley. This Trail is generally climbed, but can be descended for a technical, challenging and fun descent.

See Animas Mountain Trail (west) for the easier half of this trail.
