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

Located along a major interstate on one side and the Colorado River on the other this trail has some of the most beautiful scenery. Take a ride during the day and stop to watch the commercial rafting trips tackle the waves. The trail has some hills but it is paved and easy to get off your bike if you feel... More

Used the bike rental service near Hotel Colorado which was fine. Trail is a nice wide, smooth sidewalk, mostly gentle coasting down canyon. A few good fishing holes are accessible from bike path downstream from Hanging Lake.

Lots of places to stop and relax along the river. It follows the highway for the most part and the engineering of the highway is a marvel!!

My wife and I have biked and hiked the Glenwood Canyon Bike Trail many times over the past 20 years. The vistas are always inspiring and beautiful. Looking up and the canyon walls is stunning. Our favorite stop is at Grizzly Creek which has picnic areas and rest facilities. Often, we just spread a blanket and sit down with food... More
