Originally a frontier mining town, Durango is known today for its scenic setting, outdoor activities, and the 1880s steam-powered railway that takes visitors through sections of the mountains where roads don't reach.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Perimeter Trail and Petroglyph Point Hike. Take a break from the city and head to San Juan National Forest and Cascade Falls Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Durango: Ouray (Uncompahgre Gorge & Imogene Pass), Silverton (Silverton Mountain, Ice Lakes Trail, & more) and Pagosa Springs (Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park, Piedra River Trail, & more). And it doesn't end there: trek along Rim Trail/ Campus Loop, explore the ancient world of Long House, take an in-depth tour of Animas Museum, and stroll through The Colorado Trail.

To find photos, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Durango sightseeing planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 82°F, and evening lows to 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
