walked from glen wood and really enjoyed the distance, view and opportunities to photograph the river.
Driving through the mountains we were passing through Glenwood Canyon and seeing the river below thought surely there must be some place to stop to get out and look around. We finally did find a place and stumbled across this gem. We didn't do any biking, but walked down to the river and played around while rafters went by on... More
This is a fantastic bike/hiking trail but the path is blocked by a significant rock slide. It is passable but it will take a bit of a climb over a 20' pile of rocks across the entire path.
If you are looking for a bike trip similar to the Vail pass to Frisco trail, this is it. However, the trail runs very close to the river. On Vail Pass, running off the road means running into grass or a rock. Here, riding off the road means going into the fast flowing river. We took small kids and their... More

Along the way are several rest areas to stop at. At the Hanging Lake rest stop... More
So many times we had driven through Glenwood Canyon and each time I'd think how much more of it we would see if we rode the trail. We finally did it and I'm so glad we did. Definitely the best way to see Glenwood Canyon! We made arrangements with Canyon Bikes in Glenwood Springs to take us and our bikes... More
The canyon bike trail is simply outstanding. You take in so little of it when driving thru that the bike trail allows you to SLOW DOWN and take it all in. The trail is essentially all downhill except for one short part where you can get off and walk. In fact, the downhill slope virtually makes it so you need... More
