Stopped at Woody Creek Tavern for lunch ( 8 miles downhill from Aspen- if you rent bikes from D & E Four Mountains- they will get your bike from Woody Creek Tavern - making it an 8 mile trip downhill for the non bikers.

We walked along the Rio Grande Trail, and connecting trails in Aspen. It's a pleasant trail, though sort-of typical these days in many towns in Colorado and elsewhere. I am impressed by the number of 4-pip and 5-pip reviews of this trail. But most such ratings that I see are from folks who have a majority of their ratings as... More

I ride this trail 4 -5 times in the summer. Have to drive an hour to get to it from home but it's worth the time and effort. Love the beautiful scenery and open space!

So you will read how easy it is to ride the bus from Glenwood to Aspen and then ride your bike back down to Glenwood - that is probably true. We decided to take out car with bikes to Aspen, ride down to Glenwood then take the bus back to Aspen to retrieve our car. For us this worked out... More

I rented a bike while I was in Aspen to ride this trail. It's a nicely paved trail and I'm sure that anyone would enjoy it.

My husband and I rented bikes and rode the 8 miles to Woody Creek and back. It's an easy bike ride but there are spots where it is very close to a steep cliff overlooking the river. Beautiful and fun.

Its beautiful, you don't have to watch every step so you can truly enjoy the scenery. We like to walk to Cemetery Lane , catch the shuttle and go back into town for lunch.

Rio Grande trail is so beautiful from beginning to end. It has beautiful foliage, bridges, statues, water falls, and the John Denver rock garden is spectacular. The private homes surrounding the trails are breathtaking. It is a very easy trail to walk or bike ride. It is winding and picturesque but there are no steep hills. Just plain beauty. I... More

This is a perfect trail for running, biking, or walking. You can spot wildlife and listen to the sounds of the water rushing past. Great trail for all ages. The entire walk is relatively flat and it is to access from town.
