Durango is lucky to have this beautiful river trail. The river makes a nice running/walking companion. The "trail" is used by many, mostly those out for a stroll. Keep an eye out for the bike riders.

Drove all Day to get to the trail. Camped first night at Purgatory ski area.Hiked down to the river and then hiked up to a trail running along the canyon. Then hiked down to the foot bridge,crossing the bridge is a big camping area. Kept hiking ,cross a stream. When about 5 miles then camped. Next day went back.Saw a lot of fish in the creek near the start of trail.1999, june
