  1. This popular seven mile out-and-back accessed from the quaint town of Silverton is mountain running at its finest. Sapphire lakes flanked by towering peaks, mountain tundra blanketed with wildflowers and waterfalls adorning the trail all add up to a run you will remember for the rest of your life.

  2. Run mountain biking style on this fast fun run sprinting down spiraling berms, jogging across open flats, and jaunting across numerous low, wooden bridges.

  3. One of the most sought after trails in all of Colorado, and for good reason. While Engineer Mountain could (and does) stand alone—an elegant bachelor begging to be tamed—the quick, two mile approach to this mountain’s flanks is a tantalizing foreplay of singletrack.

  4. Tough, but extremely rewarding, Animas Mountain provides a stout workout, but stunning views along the way to help ease the pain.

  6. If you don’t have all day to devote to your run, but still want to experience some of the beauty Durango has to offer outside city limits, Hoffheins Connection is one of the best options around.

  7. Better than the river trail with views of the Animas River Valley and the La Platas, the Rim Trail circumnavigates Fort Lewis College and Hill Crest Golf Course all while offering unimpeded views of Historic Downtown Durango.

  8. It’s not called Skyline for nothing. This 9-mile loop, which also includes Raider Ridge and the Powerline Trail, soars above Durango for unobstructed 360-degree views. But, like all good things, you’ve got to work for it.
