A partnership worth celebrating

Building great trails requires a great community, and great partnerships between land agencies, community organizations, and the public are imperative. This connection resonates in Durango and entices celebrating the legacy of so many individuals and entities that have helped make the Durango brand one worth preserving.

Since 1989, Trails 2000’s key trail partners include the City of Durango, La Plata County, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Forest Service, and private landowners. Trails 2000 relies on it cadre of volunteers to help build and maintain trails in and around Durango. Each year, Trails 2000 volunteers contribute over 4,000 hours of trailwork—totaling more than 165 days.
