Animas River Trail

Nice Trail

September, 2015 by adsaxs

The Animas River Trail, as its name implies, is a paved trail that runs along the Animas River for about 7 miles (one way).

We started the trail at the La Plata Fairgrounds and headed north into town. The trail through town is narrow and is busy with cyclists, walkers, joggers, and people pushing baby carriages. You need to pay attention on this section of the trail because it also has a number of large cracks and tree roots on the path. If you are a history buff, there are a number of interpretive signs along the trail. There are also a number of restaurants and cafés along this section of the trail. The trail also passes through several parks.

The trail passes through Santa Rita Park which has a visitor center and nice areas for picnicking. The trail continues on for about 3.5 miles from the park and this section of the trail is the best. The trail looks newer. It is wider and has more ups and downs than the northern section. The trail ends abruptly at a scenic overlook. Overall, it was an enjoyable ride.

Great ride

August, 2015 by rwustrack

Rode this trail 3 days straight in late July. The north end which is bordered by the Animas River and downtown businesses can be a little congested but is still very scenic and enjoyable.
Head south east out of town and you can get up a head of steam and enjoy some short climbs while still following the river.
This trail cost the Colorado Tax Payers a few bucks with dedicated bridges and mostly concrete pathway. It is first class all the way and I wish there were more trails done with the attention to safety and detail this one has gotten.

Rode the trail end of July, 2012. We parked at the Visitor Center and rode out both ways and back. Loved it. Very scenic along the river and easy to follow. Plenty of interesting stops. Surface is good. A few large cracks to watch for. We were riding hybrids. Beware of not-so-smart people with babies sitting in lawn chairs under shaded bridges on the trail along the river in town. This trail is highly used.

Animas River Trail

parts were closed. there's work-arounds

February, 2012 by bogglersto

this is a peaceful river ride. some parts of the trail were closed, but it was not a problem. If you look at the maps on the side of the trail, you can usually see where you need to go to get past the area being worked on. I saw two 'speedo torpedo's' all angry and complaining like petulant little kids about the trail being closed.

Lots of Activity on Animas River Trail

June, 2010 by noeljkelller

Many short steep grades. Except for the root heaves and cracks, mainly south of US 160 bridge, this would be a 5 star Trail. Excellent Scenery, Historical Signs and Facilities. Watch the River Trippers on Rafts, Kayaks, & Tubes as you ride along side, or from the bridges.
