Flowing out of the rugged San Juan Mountains and Weminuche Wilderness, the Animas River area is rich in history. The river has formed a long rugged canyon and then flows through Durango before entering Indian lands and flowing into New Mexico. There is a variety of additional area activities to enjoy including Mesa Verde National Park, Narrow Gauge Railroad, and an alpine slide at Durango Mountain Resort. The Narrow Gauge Railroad parallels the river north of Durango through much of the canyon adding a unique feature to this destination.
