[ARCHIVED] Trail Construction Begins at Durango Mesa Park

Trail construction signage

The City of Durango and Durango Mesa Park Foundation are building a maintenance access route this week at Durango Mesa Park that will enable trail construction crews to access the areas where trail build will occur beginning later this spring. Equipment and materials may be visible from the Horse Gulch trail system. 

Following the creation of the maintenance access, trail construction of six new trails will take place. These trails have been designed for specific uses, experiences, directional travel and will provide you with a taste of what is in store for Durango Mesa Park as the full vision takes shape.

New trails and the maintenance access will remain closed to the public during construction. Durango Mesa Park is private property and we ask the community to respect this by refraining from entering until we have announced that the trails are open. Please observe all signs that will be in place during construction.

“We are looking forward to partnering with Progressive Trail Design, Durango Trails and AJ Construction trail crews to build these first few Durango Mesa Park trails,” said Parks and Recreation Director Ture Nycum. “Thank you, in advance, for your patience while this work is being done.”
