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 boasts some Class V Rapids that even the pros respect.
We recommend the River Trail as it's a good place for land lubbers to be near the water without getting wet.
