We didn't get a chance to enjoy the full length of the trail but enjoyed the area we did see to the south of town. The bank of the river had been improved to allow for easy access for water sports (That also meant easy access for us). The trail was wide and in good condition. We saw bikers, runners and people with their dogs. A beautiful, easy trail!

The Animas River Trail is a very nice way to see Durango on foot or bike. The trail is paved and level, so will accommodate any level of hiker/rider. The trail goes out of town and through town, so you can stop and eat/drink at several places along the way.

We rode bikes and it is an easy ride. Watching the rafters and tubers go down the river tempted us to try it, but we didn't have time during this visit.

We will definitely ride the trail again if we return!

We enjoyed walking along the river with our young children. The scenery was beautiful and you can see kayakers, rafters and fishermen. We went down to the water's edge and skipped stones and even waded in the water (tip: bring sandals or water shoes you can wear into the water).

The walking path along the Animas River in Durango is a pleasant, shaded trail. Children enjoy wading at the edges of the creek, although there are also plenty of rapids for tubing and kayaking. There is a playground for children as well.

A beautiful, peaceful several mile (or less if you so choose) walk along the Animas River on a wide, paved trail, accessible at many places,...crossing bridges, esp. the train bridge near Rotary Park, passing parks,the town library and rec center, maybe seeing a bear or deer or other wildlife, and definitely rafters and kayakers on the river, passing bikers and other hikers...definitely a must on a visit to Durango...There are several places to stop for a treat or snack and there could be a concert at Rotary Park on the right day.
