Animas River Trail to SMART 160 Trail Connection
The City of Durango is evaluating the Animas River Trail to SMART 160 Trail connection with consideration of several alternatives.  The trail planning and design involves the area between River Road and the existing section of the SMART 160 Trail at the west end of the Grandview interchange.

Durango Whitewater Park
Durango Whitewater Park in-stream construction is finished and open for boating. Construction on the shoreline amenities adjacent to the in-stream Whitewater Park features will continue the remainder of this year. To scout the Smelter Rapids at the Whitewater Park, use river right at the Off Leash Area (dog park) and portage river left and walk on the re-route of the Animas River Trail around the wastewater treatment plant to put back in near the restrooms.

The improvements will secure the City's Recreational In-channel Diversion (RICD) water rights for the Animas River.  The improved Whitewater Park will add features for top level and recreational boaters.
