Easter is a meaningful holiday for families across the world, but in 2021, it’s hard not to feel it’s an even more important time for family and friends to enjoy. With 2020 firmly behind us, it’s refreshing to think that this year, there’s more opportunity to spend holiday time together, rather than apart.
It’s not surprising that many people are tired of time cooped up at home and are looking forward to time away from the confines they know so well this Easter holiday season. Easter is a celebration of hope and for many, that feeling can be conjured up alongside the excitement of packing a suitcase and heading somewhere new alongside those you love.
In 2021, consider taking your Easter plans somewhere equally scenic and inviting by setting your travel sights on Durango, Colorado. Between the captivating scenery, sensational options for fun, and mountain fresh air, you might find yourself lingering longer than you ever imagined. When your plans for the Easter holiday in Durango are best enjoyed, the following are just a few of many options for maximizing the meaningful and well-deserved fun!
Make the Most of Hiking Adventures
Rising temperatures in Durango around the Easter holiday mean that those with a passion for putting on their hiking boots and hitting the trails will be endlessly inspired by the possibilities. Durango is blessed with a maze of hiking trails to discover but this time of year, the Castle Rock via Elbert Creek trail is particularly inviting. You’ll still want to layer as temperatures tend to fluctuate with elevation, but overall, it’s a trail that promises to be welcoming at every turn. Running through the San Juan National Forest, this trail is 5.3 miles total and if you’re an experienced hiker hitting the route, you’ll want to set aside about 3 hours to complete the entire path. Dogs and horses alike are welcome on this out and back trail which is most popular to traverse between March and October and enjoys elevation gains of 1,666 feet.
Try Horseback Riding
Durango, Colorado is a breathtaking destination known for offering up visitors some sensational and truly unforgettable views. While taking it all in on foot is one thing, there’s something special about enjoying the scenery from a vantage point on horseback. That’s where booking time with Over the Hill Outfitters is sure to please. This local ranch and riding company provides guests with options to book private and group trail rides that accommodate experience levels of all types. As you follow your guide through the San Juan National Forest, you’ll enjoy seeing new buds on the trees and plants that indicate summer is just around the corner.
