This was a very scenic ride, but was closed at mile 5 for repairs of the trail. It paralleled the Colorado River and included those walking or running the trail as well.

Sure you've rode your bike on many beautiful trails, probably more difficult than Glenwood Canyon, but none more breath taking. You can't help but stop several times to gaze at the white water rafters, and the majestic heights of the canyon towering above you. How's this overused word, AWESOME!

Got an early start and we were the only ones on the trail. We used road bikes and this was fine as the trail is paved throughout and well maintained.

One morning, we decided to walk along the bike trail. We wanted to enjoy seeing the Colorado River first-hand, and the beautiful mountain views. We were rewarded with both. The path followed alongside the river for miles. The bikers and the walkers were very respectful of each other along the pathway. There were plenty of trees and foliage to offer... More

So incredibly beautiful!! Only thing we would have done different is brought a picnic lunch so we didn't have to leave. The canyon is breathtaking and it's so fun getting to watch all the groups going down the river on their rafts!!

This is a must if you like to ride bikes and want to enjoy the canyon! The trail is not hard and is all cement. It winds along the river and through the awesome gigantic red cliffs! This is closed at times of high water, so check first before planning your day. There are numerous bike rental options in Glenwood... More

This was our second time on the bike trail and we really enjoy it. The scenery is beautiful. The only downfall this time, was that part of the bike trail was closed this time. Looking forward to doing it again next time.

I have both walked and biked this trail - either way is fantastic. You really feel miniscule when walking amongst the towering canyon walls and alongside the roaring river. Unfortunately part of the trail is closed (due to flooding/high waters) - beginning just east of Hanging Lake - you can still walk/bike from Glenwood Springs to Hanging Lake which is... More

The Glenwood Canyon bike trail goes 16 miles from Glenwood Springs to Dotsero, but you can enter the trail from several different parking spots to change the distance of your bike trip to meet your interests and fitness levels. The trail is level and travels along the Colorado River and under the roadway of I-70. You get a unique view... More

If you can ride a bicycle, you can ride this trail. This ride is almost all downhill and paved. Just use caution rounding a few blind curves. There's scenery above (the canyon) and below (the river) the entire length of the trail. Even the highway that the trail runs along side of is interestingly scenic. Take your time and enjoy... More
