The Among the Waters River Trail begins at Bisti Highway and continues about one mile to Murray Drive/Highway 64. The first third of the trail runs south along the San Juan River until it pivots northeast at the confluence and continues along the Animas River. This portion of the trail is unique because it not only parallels two rivers but also intersects the farmers’ irrigation ditch and city water infrastructure ways. Trail users will cross three bridges as they journey through old willow and cottonwood bosques and enjoy scenic views of the bluffs exposed by elevation changes along the way.
The City of Farmington is currently expanding the Among the Waters Trail to join the Centennial Trail near Boyd Park. When completed, Farmington will have 4½ miles of connected river trails from the Bisti Highway (Hwy 371) to the Animas Park, Browning Pkwy Bridge (Hwy 516). Trail construction includes installing 2 foot bridges and trail lighting. Scheduled completion of the trail extension is Fall of 2021.
