We ate a picnic lunch at a Durango park as we enjoyed people watching along the Animas trail and the kayaks passing by on the Animas River. We walked briefly on the short trail, unfortunately needed to cut our time short there. I think the trail is only about a mile and probably very worthwhile as it meanders though Durango..

This river trail was paved the entire way and the sights were refreshing. The Animas was high and flowed fast and the nature around it was peaceful. Listen out for bicyclists, they are abundant!

I was at the Doubletree and had the luxury of walking along the Animas one afternoon. Gorgeous river, people rafting and kayaking with friends and their dogs on board too! Parks along the way. Right by downtown--all Good!!

Grab a cup of joe in the morning and take a walk on the river trail. Do your soul some good! It is sooo relaxing. What else can you say?

The River Trail runs all through Durango along the river's path. We walked just short select areas of the trail and found it both enjoyable and scenic. Would have loved to had more time to explore the whole Trail.

If you like to river raft then this is where you want to go if you have kids. Has rapids but not too bad, lots of fun in tubes. Has places to fish and swim. There are some sandy beaches as well. Water is usually cold though takes a little bit of getting used too as it comes from mountain... More

I loved walking this trail. It is everything an urban hike should be. Businesses were accessible and nature was nearby.

Great trail to walk or ride your bike. There is nothing to dislike. You can walk to restaurants or downtown.
