Used different parts of the trail on different days. It's really pleasant and pretty along the river. Was surprised that the southern end of the trail wasn't industrial like I thought it would be. On/off access is everywhere.

we rented our bikes from 2nd ave sports and rode the whole trail. It was a blast. The trail runs along the river and you can stop at parks and restaurants on your the way. Bring a lot of water. It was so pretty.

Chilled out here after hiking all day. You can slip into any place along the way to eat. There is also a spa along the river

We walked a few miles after breakfast and before getting back on the road for our vacation. It was so exciting to see the White water Rafting and the Kayakers going by. The park and trail is well maintained and has restrooms and changing rooms.

We enjoyed walking a segment beginning at Animas Brewing Co and ending near the Botanical Garden. It is well maintained and paved at that section so easy for my little girl to navigate. The Durango Fish Hatchery is on the path and that is a...More

Open in all seasons, great for bikes and walkers. Used heavily by locals so a good way to meet local folks and ask about the area. Approximately 7 miles end to end. Santa Rita Park is a good starting point, heading north (up river) has...More
