Great way to see part of Durango and to enjoy the Animas river. Convenient parking and easy access to downtown Durango.

My wife and I rented bikes and road the trail. Totally comfortable and incredibly scenic. Plenty of ups and downs that made it fun. Highly recommend taking the trail whether you ride bikes or walk.

This is a very peaceful walking trail that is easily accessible. Fun to watch people tubing down the river.

My husband and I stayed in the historic old town of Durango. We did this walk on two separate days. The first day we went south, beginning at Albertson's in downtown and ending at Walmart. The trail goes along the river the entire way. There is a park along the way with toilet facilities. We ate at a Texas barbeque... More

We rode our bikes from one end to the other while staying in Durango. Really nice views of the river and town. There was one short gravel section that must have been under construction -- not too great with our road bikes, but it wasn't too long.

An easy, paved trail winding through Durango, Colorado. Easy enough for people of all ages, long enough to be challenging for those seeking a good work out. Gorgeous mountain views, and runs alongside the Animas River.

We walked most of the trail and thoroughly enjoyed the stroll. There was a pot-a-potty along the way as there was ongoing construction, but not sure that is always available. It had rained, so the river was muddy, but still enjoyable. Not sure if directional signs were removed for construction or if they are nonexistent but would be helpful

Walked the trail with my elderly parents. I enjoyed it, but I wish there had been more benches for them to rest at.

Nice paved trail, taking you from downtown sights out to the country. Heading north from downtown you'll see a lot of the Animas River, railroad tracks (and maybe the steam train, if you plan it right), woodland and city parks. We didn't take the southern half but the northern part, taken to the end, would be about 3 miles of... More
