Through TravelZoo I got half price ($21) per person bike rentals and shuttle to the top of the canyon. From there we road down to Hanging Lake Trail where it is almost impossible to find a parking space for a car. We locked up our bikes and hiked for a couple of hours. When we got down it was starting... More

Glenwood Canyon Bike Trail is a great place to bike! Very picturesque! There are bike shops at the bottom of the trail. If you want to bike the whole trail, you will have to arrange transportation. We drove to Bair and biked the 13 miles down to Glenwood Springs. It was mostly downhill, but some uphill. We got back to... More

Great trip down the trail. Its a nice leisure ride. My 67 year old mother in law and 70 year old father in law enjoyed it too! Worth taking the shuttle!

The trail is very easy for all skill and fitness levels, especially if you do it one way, starting upstream and going towards Glenwood Springs, which is what we did with the help of the local company called Canyon Bikes who took us in a van to Bair Ranch from which we rode 14 miles back into town at a...

Surprised this road biking Virginia girl, passing through the Rockies in mid-summer; a concrete paved rail trail through a canyon along/above/below I-70 and the Colorado River, accessed from my campsite. No, it's not roadie heaven, or a very good training ride, either, once the hikers and skates and strollers come out with the mid morning sun, but what an excellent... More

Having seen some of the rave reviews of this trail on Trip Advisor we signed up for the Blue Sky Adventures shuttle service. While the canyon itself is undeniably beautiful, it's hardly tranquil as the (paved) bike path runs alongside an InterState highway. It's a very easy 16 mile ride - my partner is a keen cyclist but I'm not... More

Beautiful spot. Steep hike, parking is limited, but I recommend riding the bike trail and parking at the trail head. This eliminates waiting for an available parking spot.
