Took a nice walk after a long day on the road. Nice walk and not overly crowded. We did not do the whole trail because of time we arrived. What we saw was very nice.

Unfortunately my wife and I were not able to spend a lot of time on the trail as it was beginning to rain, but we did really enjoy the walking trail! The trail also had one of the best children's playgrounds we had ever seen!...More

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 have walked various parts of the trail on numerous visits. It's beautiful and a great place to run, walk, ride bikes, or walk your dog.
