Nice paved trail and great overlooks into Animas Valley. However, you have to drive about eight miles up Junction Creek Road to get there. Not sure it's worth the drive for a repeat walk. It's not a hike. Pit toilets and picnic area there, too.

This is a beautiful paved trail that overlooks Durango and the Animas Valley. There are a few picnic tables and several informative signs. Definitely worth taking the drive to see, and is a great place for a picnic and small children. We went during the week and had the place to ourselves.
