We took a stroll along the Animas river trail. It is a relaxing, beautiful area with many pedestrians and bicycles. A great getaway in the heart of Durango.

This is a nice walk, very scenic and not very strenuous at all. I liked watching the kayakers navigate the river. Family oriented area, seemed safe.

We visited Durango in August from Phoenix, AZ. The weather was amazing and it was a treat to be able to walk along the Animas River in the early mornings. The trail is very well maintained.

The Animas River Trail is a paved trail for bikers and walkers that is about six miles or so along the river. It's real close to the downtown area and within walking distance. Beautiful way to start the day with a run or walk.

A nice trail to walk along the Animas River. It is clean and well maintained. A peaceful walk along, shaded in areas with access stairs at certain points to street level.
