“A beautiful trail system along the Animas River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

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.

“multiple uses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

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 snow.

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.

“Nice walk”

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.
