We pulled in on April 21 and had to pay high season rates of $50+ to camp. Fine except no garbage cans, no open restroom anywhere nearby, no service.

This is a great trail for walking or biking. It follows the river and is relatively flat. Great view of the Canyon and river. You'll see deer and big horn sheep as well as some great birding along the way.

This bike trail was a real gem for our family. All of us bike at differing levels, yet we could all ride out and back on the bike path and enjoy the views of the river. It was easy to find and use. Our family recommends this bike path!

A scenic ride along the Colorado river, well paved path and you have an option to stop at many scenic spots along the way, such as Grizzley creek and Hanging lake. Its a must for beauty of the Glenwood canyon with the steep walls of rocks to view and the river.

This is a great trail for sights. Not particularly challenging, except for altitude, since it follows the river. Some ambient noise from the freeway and occasional train. Glenwood Canyon is spectacular and the engineering of the interstate is amazing, if you like that sort of thing. Rarely crowded and people are mostly polite.

We love to ride this bike trail in the spring summer and fall, it's always beautiful and very well maintained. The only drawback is the I-70 traffic.

We rode to Glenwood and back from No Name and Glenwood Canyon Resort Campground. Some of the ride was fun to see as it was close to the river and the canyon walls. The last mile into Glenwood is along the interstate and although an easy ride, it is noisy and dirty from the interstate traffic, but of course the... More

There are 2 killer hills on this stretch, but it is otherwise an easy to bike trail that follows the Colorado river through the canyon. Great scenery comes with your exercise.

This has been always one of my favorite places to take a walk or a bike ride. Riding next to the rive in the canyon is simple amazing, there is no better experience than that, the scenaries are breathtaking and the sound of the river is relaxing. You may also see the train pass by, or see some people floating... More
