Overview
First Fork Trail #727 is a 3.3 mile one way hike with 1,610 feet elevation gain. Located 9 miles northeast of Durango Colorado. June and September are the best months to enjoy this hike.


This trail is excellent during late spring through mid-fall, due to its relatively low elevation and southeast-facing slopes. The trail winds through timber on the lower section, but opens up farther along the trail. The trail follows a stream, which is crossed several times. Water availability is not a problem, but all water should be purified, due to problems with Giardia. This trail is excellent for viewing the fall colors of the Gambel oak and aspen trees. It is not uncommon to see large game such as elk and mule deer in the First Fork/Missionary Ridge Trail areas.
