4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Easy access to a quiet and scenic river trail. Well maintained path and bridges offer nice walking opportunities in town with great views of area and river.

“A great way to see the town and enjoy the river.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Love the views of the river, the Durango & Silverton Railroad, and the easy access to downtown attractions. A fun walk and a great bike path. Plenty of access points available.

“Walking and Fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The Animas River Trail is a trail that I wish was by my house in SC. The trail offers access to the Animas river for fly fishing. The trail is wonderful for walking and bike riding. If you like to ride, walk or fish don't miss this trail when you are in Durango.

“Ran along this trail--absolutely beautiful in the fall!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

This is an absolutely beautiful trail (concrete path) along the river. It is spectacular during the fall with all the colors of the leaves and the river flowing along. Would do this path every day if I lived here!
