We had a large family group in town and took everyone from 6 years old to 69 years old tubing on the Animas River. We dropped in at 32nd Avenue and got out around 9th. It was mid-July and there were a few areas of fairly quick moving rapids and shallow rocks. If you make the trip, I highly recommend... More

This river was the focal point of our trip. Constantly flowing creating a tranquil sound. We rented a home directly on the river and have truly enjoyed the experience.

Beautiful and peaceful, yet rapid and fun! Nice to just walk along and view, especially from the train!

We enjoyed following the Animas River along the Durango Silverton train tracks and walking along the paved River Trail in Durango. This is a scenic fast-moving river with broad flat places and steep narrow gorges. The river is used by kayakers and river float trips and others who just want to be on the water. During snow melt season it... More

While visiting Durango we saw much of the river in different locations. Next visit will definitely have to go on a raft. Saw people rafting from the train, looked Ike fun.

We went to Durango for my Mom's 70th birthday and did the water rafting on a whim. We were really not expecting too much. Let me tell you that we had a BLAST. It actually was the best part of the trip for me. Mild to Wild had excellent customer service and were very helpful. The process seemed a little... More

My daughter and I went white water rafting on the river which is gorgeous. We followed it up the next day by renting bikes in town and riding along the bike trail along the river for a couple of hours. There are great spots to stop along the way to take pictures or even have lunch. Keep in mind that... More
