Upcoming parking closures at Horse Gulch trailhead


UPDATE 9/8/2023: Parking lot closure changed to Sept. 20 

Durango, CO: A portion of the Horse Gulch trailhead parking lot is scheduled to be closed starting Tuesday, Sept. 20 as part of the development of the demonstration trails that connect to Durango Mesa Park. 

The new trails are scheduled to open in the fall as part of a joint effort between the City of Durango and the Durango Mesa Park foundation. Planning started after gathering community input during 2020-2022.Work began in April to build the new trails, including 3 multi-use connector trails from Horse Gulch to Durango Mesa Park, a new connection trail from Telegraph trail, and 3 directional downhill trails that include 2 flow trails (one will be adaptive cycle accessible), and an intermediate downhill trail.

Durango Mesa Park, just south of Horse Gulch on the nearby mesa, is a nearly 2,000-acre project that will include a world-class 80+ acre mountain biking facility with a base area for all ages, but also serve as a potential home for the county fairgrounds, a concert venue, disc-golf course, along with other recreation uses and will conserve hundreds of acres of open space. 

The City of Durango asks visitors to consider parking west side of East Eighth Avenue.  Public pedestrian and bike access to Horse Gulch Road will be maintained during the construction.
