Durango Colorado

The name “Durango” comes from a Basque word meaning “Water Town”. The Animas River runs right through Durango, and visitors can enjoy a half-day or full-day guided raft trip, take on the river solo in a kayak or canoe, or simply wade along its sandy and rocky banks with the family dog and watch the boaters float by. Click here for a list of local rafting companies and outfitters. Durango is home to some of the world’s best single track mountain biking, road biking, and outdoor recreation. With over 1,000 miles of trails and numerous organized races and tours, Durango offers the perfect atmosphere to make every ride memorable. So whether you’re a professional racer, a weekend warrior, or still on training wheels, come on out and exp- erience for yourself why Durango was just designated a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly Community from the League of American Bicyclists!
