The development of the Animas River Trail in Durango has occurred over several decades, beginning in 1976. And to give credit where it's due, we offer a big thanks to Kevin Hall, the City of Durango's Parks, Open Space and Trails Viceroy. He's personally overseen the most rapid expansion of this trail system to date.
On firm packed powder, excellent traction can be had with a set of Continental Town and Country tires. Looks great for skate skiing, too! Did we mention Kevin Hall's a XC skier, originally from Wisconsin?
This snowblower is one of many machines the City of Durango uses to quickly clear snow and allow the trail to be used as an everyday bike commuter route. Honestly, the trail is always in better shape for riding than the adjoining streets after a snow storm.
