The Animas River Trail is a paved trail that follows the Animas River for roughly 5 miles, winding in and out of parks over several bridges. You can enter the trail at the northernmost point located at the intersection of 32nd St and East 3rd Avenue. Dogs are permitted on the trails as long as they are on a leash. You can access the Durango Dog Park along the Animas River Trail. This is an off-leash dog park that allows dogs plenty of access to run.
