West Lime Creek Trail #679 is a 2.54 mile one way hike with 828 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 32 miles north-northeast of Durango Colorado.
This trail follows West Lime Creek for several miles, then crosses and leaves it. There are several waterfalls along the creek. Usually there is an abundance of wildflowers in July and August. All water from the creek should be filtered, to prevent problems with Giardia. The trail fades out between the Twin Sisters, but with a compass and a topographic map it is possible to navigate a route to the Twin Sisters or Colorado Trail. From here you can head north or south, climbing either of the Twin Sisters, or another high point has a spectacular view and excellent opportunities for photography.
