Horse Gulch Dedication This Friday!

Horse Gulch Dedication This Friday!
Trails 2000 planned, built and helped secure trails in Horse Gulch since its inception and is very excited to work with the City of Durango on a dedication ceremony taking place this Friday, November 5th. The City has purchased over 1100 acres in Horse Gulch and these properties were all preserved with the assistance of major grant funding from Great Outdoors Colorado.

The City would like to recognize its partnership with GOCO and others with a brief dedication ceremony this Friday November 5th between 12:15 PM and 12:45 PM in the Horse Gulch Meadow. Lise Aangeenbrug, Executive Director of GOCO will be in attendance as will other partners, and members of the City Council and Advisory Boards.

The weather forecast is calling for sunny and mid 60s Friday so please come out and join us in marking this important community milestone. We will meet at the Horse Gulch trailhead at noon (located on 3rd Street just north of Building Specialties) and hike or bike to the dedication ceremony in the meadow, approximately 1/2 mile up the trail.

Animas High Ospreys Head to State Champs

The Animas High Osprey’s are heading off to state championships this weekend in Elbert, Colorado at the Peaceful Valley Boy Scout Ranch. We are taking 12 athletes  to the final event of the inaugural Colorado High School MTB league season. We are currently in 6th place in the team standings out of 20 teams. There will also be 1 or 2 athletes from DHS attending as independent racers, as DHS does not have a formal team this season. The league has been very successful in its first year as it has averaged over 170 racers per event. A typical summer Mountain States Cup race or large regional race will tend to average 25-35 per event. This new junior racing program in the state will have a huge effect on Colorado’s future junior cycling development as it is a great non-intimidating introduction to the sport.race information
