SMART 160
SMART 160 Trail
The SMART 160 Trail (Safe Multi-modal Aesthetic Regional Transportation), has been a vision of Durango area residents since the mid 1990’s. It is planned as a multi-use hard-surface trail along Highway 160 that will be built to the same standards as the Animas River Trail. Several segments of the trail are already constructed in the Grandview area with more segments in the planning and development stage.


Animas River Trail to SMART 160 Trail Connection
The City of Durango is evaluating the Animas River Trail to SMART 160 Trail connection with consideration of several alternatives.  The trail planning and design involves the area between River Road and the existing section of the SMART 160 Trail at the west end of the Grandview interchange.

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and the Multi Modal Advisory Board recommendation to the Durango City Council on the Animas River Trail to SMART 160 Trail connection alignment.
