Reaching 126 miles long, the Animas River is one of the last free-flowing rivers in the state of Colorado. Beginning in the Needle Mountains of the San Juan Mountain Range, these waters rush along Cinnamon Mountain and cascade through wild canyons before flowing through Silverton, Colorado. As it exits Silverton, the Animas races for Durango, Colorado, where a section of the water holds a Colorado Gold Medal fishing destination title. Once out of the Durango territory, the Animas sees its ultimate resting place in New Mexico where it merges with the San Juan River near the city of Aztec.
