“The perfect place to see the town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Running from near Walmart in the south, through town up towards 32nd St, the trail is the perfect place for walkers, runners, dogs, skateboarders and cyclists. You get the perfect vantage point to enjoy the river as well as being able to hop off the trail and into interesting attractions at various points. Watch out for the cafe at the museum, the informative signage and the entertaining public art dotted long its length.

This is a great trail to walk, bike, whatever! Very pretty along the river. Spend some time on it when you are in town!

“Bicycle cruising on Animas River Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) rented cruiser bikes and rode along the Animas River trail the entire length and back (about 14 miles). It was a really fun day - beautiful weather and a really nice trail that is along the river for the most part. Even though it was Labor Day weekend it was not terribly crowded. It is not a trail you would want to go on a serious bike ride on since it is fairly narrow and there are people walking so you have to ride somewhat slowly. It is perfect for a leisurely cruise though.

“Not really on the river”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We went to the head of this trail to see what it was about, but we had to walk forever in meadows and such. There is a small bit by the river, but even that part is way up high over the river. It was a good walk for exercise, but little shade.
