Description Suggest change

Sailing Hawks is one of the best bouldering places in Durango! It includes well-traveled trails for easy access and navigation, a big warm-up boulder near the beginning, and lots and lots of rock.

This area is also used for hiking, horse-back rididng and other recreational uses.

No camping is allowed in the Hawks.

Getting There Suggest change

To get there head [north] on Main or US 550, take a left at the light on West 25th, travel about a mile, and you will see a dirt parking area on the right - it is hard to miss. Continue up the main trail until you are forced a hard right. Instead of following the main wood-chip road that leads right, follow the dirt path in front of you until you reach a flat part of the hill. Here you will see a path continuing straight and one that goes right up the hill, head up the hill.
