Written Directions

Head south out of Ignacio downtown, turn west on 318. Head south on 550 just long enough to take 214 north, all the way to Durango. Stay left instead of crossing bridge by Home Depot, river road continues another 3 miles. Turn right under high bridge to end up at shopping mall.

Scenery

318's a boring straight shot but with beautiful views of the La Plata Mountains. 213 (La Posta Road) is a twisty river road that'lll challenge any rider, beware the 2-3 "Deadman's Curves!" Beautiful Animas river ride beside the road.

Road Quality

Decent asphalt, no potholes last time I rode it.

Roadside Amenities

A few places you can pull over but no stores, gas, restaurants along this route.

Additional Info

When everyone else takes 172 to Durango, don't follow them! This is the scenic route!
