About Us

Trails 2000 is your local non profit, trails organization connecting you to the outdoors. We plan, build and maintain trails, educate trail users, and encourage connectivity on road, path and trail. The leaders behind the Silver and Gold Levels Bicycle Friendly Durango; the Commuter Challenge, SMART 160 trail and the Chapman Hill Bike Park Project, we are involved in all elements of connectivity. But your support is vital as all trailwork takes place through the generous help of volunteers. We care for all types of trails: hike, bike or horse, and we encourage everyone to join in. Our group is very involved in the community and in trail planning from singletrack to bike paths. We’ve been working on planning connections for over twenty years!

aboutWhy do we value trails so much? The reasons are fundamental: the outdoors, Mother Nature, community, health, pleasant weather, spectacular landscapes, fitness, fresh air and open space. We cherish our surroundings and value our time outdoors. Trails are essential; they are our pathways to and through the outdoors.
