Trails north of Animas River at Berg Park temporarily closed: City taking precautions in anticipation of rising water

The City of Farmington has temporarily closed trails on the north side of Animas River at Berg Park due to rising water levels. Trails on the north side of the river from River Reach Terrace to the Animas Bridge (furthest bridge to the east) are closed. Trails on the south side of the river will remain open.

The closure is a precaution in anticipation of rising water levels over the next several days.

Barriers and signs informing the public of closure are being placed along the river trails. For their safety, individuals should not try to pass the barriers.

The City will continue to monitor the river flow and provide updates as they become available.
