Durango Events

Melting snow is cause for celebration in Durango. This southern Colorado town sits at an elevation of 6,512 feet and is home to nearly 1,000 miles of mountain biking trails and a myriad of rivers and lakes accessible to kayakers, rafters and fishermen.

Hiking, backpacking, camping and rock climbing are great ways to explore and experience the Durango area. From a simple day hike along the Animas River Trail to a grueling summit of one of the nearby 14ers, Durango makes a great base camp for a summer getaway.
