Overview
Big Bend Trail #519 is a 5.36 mile one way hike with 55 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 23 miles north-northwest of Durango Colorado.


This trail would make an excellent loop trail, as would most other trails in the Hermosa Creek drainage. The trail follows a stream except for the top part, which follows a ridge. There are wonderful fishing holes, beautiful views, and several types of wildflowers. You may see elk, coyote, and an occasional bear. Water should always be purified, to avoid problems with Giardia.

Check out the Official Route.
