Hiking: this is a great trail for anyone visiting Durango and staying in town, as you access from the North end of city limits...this is a loop trail around the perimeter of Animas Mountain. First half is a consistant uphill climb. Latter half is a gradual downgrade. Views include all of the Durango area, Animas Valley/river, La Plata's, and mountains north (such as Engineer and the Needle's). Moderately difficult. Bring plenty of water in warmer months. Beware of small side trails that branch off and cut across the mountain.
