“Great views”

Rim Trail/ Campus Loop
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Very scenic views of the town, the mountains, and even met a little deer in the parking lot. Got some great pictures.

You can drive up to Fort Lewis College and sit around the edge of the trail (there are benches in several spots) and watch the sun set on the mountains and Durango below. It was so pleasant, we actually went up 2 nights in a row. We have fairly little kids, so we didn't actually hike the trail, just enjoyed the view.

It's a quick drive up to the college. The campus was gorgeous around sundown. We saw families of deer everywhere and even spotted a rainbow!

A short, steep, narrow trail from 5th street up to the Fort Lewis College campus...Beautiful views of town and the mountains...IF you go at night definitely take a flashlight and strongly suggested as well is a hiking staff. A good place to watch the 4th of July fireworks...

You can hike up the Nature Trail which starts at the corner of E. 6th Avenue and 10th Street in Durango. At the top of the nature trail, you will be right beside the Ft Lewis campus chapel and the view is to die for!! Or, if you aren't up for a 20 minute hike, just drive up to the Fort Lewis Chapel and enjoy the view of town!
