Nice views, super easy level trail. Our almost 3 year old "hiked" it with us. Like walking on the sidewalk in Durango but with nice views.

Very short, fairly level paved trail. For someone who isn’t used to the attitude or just wants some spectacular views of Durango but doesn’t want to hike a difficult trail, this is the one.

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.
