The Animas River Trail is an alternative to taking the train to get to Chicago Basin. The trail follows the riverbanks for much of its distance, offering fishing possibilities. The river canyon walls are steep and rocky, making the sun come up late and set early. There are many good campsites along the way. Since this is a major drainage, all water used should be filtered to prevent possible Giardia contamination. This trail is used by horse outfitters, so expect to see horse traffic.
