The Hidden Valley, aka Church Camp, Loop is a 9.1 mile hike just outside of Durango, Colorado. The trail features beautiful wild flowers and lots of scenic vistas. The trail is recommended for use from June through October.

The trail is shared by mountain bikers, hikers, and trail runners. The Hidden Valley Loop offers amazing views of the Animas Valley, especially when the foliage changes in the fall.
