This trail is TOUGH. Steep, rocky and somewhat gravelly at times. We didn't make it all the way up. However there's a nice trail that goes to the Wolfsohn trail which is a gradual climb and then the same elevation when you reach the plateau. Provides a nice view of the river.

Stay off the road and hike the mountain path up, and you won't be disappointed. Great view of Glenwood Springs.

We locals call it the "Hike to the Cross" and I've made the ascent many times over the years. Allow several hours to get up and down, unless your into fitness and running and don't have slow pokes in your group. Please bring plenty of water and wear good walking shoes. Great vistas and if you can find someone who... More

I've been hiking, skiing and biking this trail for 5 decades and never, ever tire of it. I started hiking it because it was just out my door, I had a dog and we both needed to off-load some energy at the end of the day. It drew me in and, before I knew it, I was in love. It... More

Nice enjoyable hike. Took our time and enjoyed the views. Not too difficult. There's a road if you are uncomfortable with the hiking trail. Would do it again.

A wonderful experience for our daughter's boyfriend from Estonia, who had never been to the U.S. Red Mountain with it's easier access (for a wheelchair) allowed him to experience some of Glenwood's true beauty! He was even fortunate to spot a beautiful young buck along the trail. One of our family's favorite hikes.

I rode my mountain bike up the Red Mountain trail this morning. I found it very enjoyable! Excellent views. Steep but manageable climb. Glad I had good brakes for the descent. I had about an hour to kill before the grand kids were up to go to the adventure park. I did not complete the summit but I must have... More

There are about a half dozen trails that begin in Glenwood Springs and climb the mountains that border the town. Red Mountain is one of the most popular. We like it for the great workout (about fifteen hundred feet of vertical in a couple of miles) and the views of town and Mt. Sopris.

Also called the Jeanne Golay Trail. The length is listed differently online and in the local map but the trail head sign says it is 3.5 miles. I think that is one way (sure felt like it :) ) I walked to the trail head from the hot springs pool - 1.7 mile each way - very easy pleasant walk.On... More

About a three mile walk, each way, to the cross on top of Red Mountain. Several choices, up the road, up the fairly well maintained though not well signed, trails. City owned so dogs are supposed to be on a leash. Excellent view of Glenwood from several rest stops.
