Smelter Mountain is a 3.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Durango, Colorado that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, birding, and snowshoeing and is best used from May until October.
If you plan on driving please have a capable vehicle. Altitude was roughly 7300. Not sure about my devices' accuracy but non the less amazing views of Durango and a parallel lake or reservoir?
My sister, friend and I hiked for the first time last month. Pretty easy hike with some rocks to contend with. Decent views of City and great exercise for the day. Took us about 3-4 hours but we stopped and took photos, etc.
