San Juan National Forest, Durango

(420+ reviews on the web)
Forest
Explore a woodland with lots of historic mining towns, hiking trails, and waterfalls at San Juan National Forest. Venture into the woods for exciting walks and discover hot springs, pretty scenery, and wild trails. The forest offers perfect locations to camp on hot summer days, with plenty of shade and camping grounds with picnic spots. Campground staff members keep an eye out for visitors' safety, as well as keeping the toilet facilities clean. However, the lack of rubbish disposal facilities means that you need to take your trash away with you. Hire a guide and go on the hunt for wild mushrooms in the forest, with several varieties in abundance. Put San Juan National Forest on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Durango vacation route planner.
