“Animas River Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Animas river is fun to raft down, or just take a picnic and a book to. There is a great paved trail that runs along the side that makes a convenient bike or walking trail for everyone.

“Pretty river walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Pretty river running through town. Was a little disappointed in the trash that had blown down from the grocery store and from the folks who picnicked riverside without cleaning up afterwards. I was glad to be with my husband, as there were some fairly rough looking guys and two very drunk or stoned guys on a couple different places in the walk. Didn't feel unsafe, just don't think I would have liked to be by myself. I was very glad to see all the folks using the river - CO is such a great, outdoors state. Really nice to take advantage of our natural resources.

“Best seen from the train!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The train parallels the Animas River for most of the way on the train. Fantastic pictures, smells, getting up close to river well into the forest!

“Nice River Walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Durango offers a nice river walk along the banks of the Animas, but it is at times a little close to the main road. The walk towards the Library and beyond is much nicer, and very relaxing.
