Church Camp

Difficulty Rating: Easy
System: High country

An easy and flat ride is hard to find when your town is based on a river and climbs to 6,512 feet in town; but the Church Camp trails by Turtle Lake are a great starting point. The trail sits in a grassy meadow and offers great views of the Hermosa cliffs and a nice place to learn. It gets rockier as you head north so you may want to turn around while you’re in the meadow, depending on the skill set.

Getting There

From Durango, drive west on 25th Street (Junction Creek Road). When the road forks go right (CR 205), pass Chapman Lake on the right side of road and park in the pullout past the National Forest sign; there is a large boulder and gravel pull out and the trail heads to the east right at the boulder.
