Animas Mountain Trail: City of Durango Professional Review and Guide

"The Animas Mountain Trail is a convenient 5.8-mile loop for which the trailhead is located within the city limits of Durango. Popular with locals, this trail offers a quick getaway from the city without the long drive to and from the trailhead.

Because of its great access, beautiful Animas Valley views, and gradual uphill grade, this 5.8-mile loop on the Animas City Mountain is a local favorite and ideal warm-up for visitors to the area before hitting the big peaks. The trail travels along the eastern rim through a pinyon-juniper and scrub oak forest for the first section of the hike, offers spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains, and then snakes its way through a ponderosa forest on the western side of the mountain before returning to the city."
