Spring Break: 5 Activities the Kids Will Love

Spring break is just around the corner, and no destination promises thrilling adventure and family bonding quite like Durango, Colorado. Tucked within the San Juan Mountains and surrounded by more than three million acres of protected wilderness, Glacier puts members and owners of all ages at the doorstep of limitless recreation — from horseback riding to cycling, ziplining, and beyond. Not sure which ones to tackle first? Here are five can’t-miss adventures to enjoy with your family this spring break. 

Cycling for All Ages

From road biking to mountain biking, Durango is famous for its endless cycling trails that cater to all ages and skill levels. Complimentary bikes are available for Glacier members, along with trails along Chris Park and Haviland Park that boast gorgeous scenery. Don’t miss the new trails at Purgatory Bike Park with access to over 400 miles of backcountry singletrack.

Saddle Up for a Trail Ride

Embrace your inner cowgirl or cowboy by going on a guided trail ride with Bears Ranch along the mountainous terrain surrounding Glacier. Soak up unbeatable views of Haviland Lake and the surrounding San Juan National Forest. No experience is necessary, making it fun for kids of all ages.

Zip Through the Treetops

For a rush of excitement, head 30 minutes north to zipline over the Animas River and through beautiful groves of Aspen trees. With Soaring Colorado, you’ll have access to the longest zip line course in the entire U.S. Your kids are guaranteed to love the thrill while you take in mileage after mileage of stunning scenery in every direction.

Cast a Line With the Family

Try your hand at fly fishing together as a family in Durango, home to several highly rated trout fishing rivers like the Animas and San Juan. With the help of Duranglers, you can get geared up with equipment, take classes and even book guided fishing trips to ensure the whole family has an unforgettable, potentially catch-filled experience.

All Aboard the Durango & Silverton Train

No family trip to Durango is complete without a ride along the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. This iconic coal-fired, steam-powered locomotive winds through canyons and breathtaking wilderness, just as settlers traveled over a century ago. Kids will love feeling as if they stepped back in time.
