View of the Animas River from the Durango-Silverton RR

Forming in the San Juan Mountains of San Juan County, the Animas River is a free-flowing, cold-water stream running north to south through Durango and down into New Mexico. It is larger than most rivers in the area, and a lot more beautiful, offering great Class II-V whitewater and excellent fishing opportunities. The season on the Animas River is longer than that of most Colorado streams. Heavy run-off from snowmelt and summer rains usually continues until mid-June, though the water may not be clear until well into July.
