The Animas River trail is a safe place to walk along the river. The area is clean and beautiful. The hotels and restaurants make it come alive at night.

Lovely river trail all the way through Durango with some concrete paths and others gravel. Bicycles were everywhere and hikers were enjoying the weather

Great way to get to all the cool things to see and do in Durango! Take a short jaunt off of the path and you are in historic downtown Durango! Great craft breweries along the path too - We love it!

A very pleasant walking trail, fully paved, within feet of the river. Pocket parks and rest facilities in places, too. Watch rafters cavort, see trout feeding, but don't get so absorbed that you fail to notice bikers - who race past silently and without warning.
