The scenery here is lovely, with Mount Sopris overlooking the peaceful valley. The highway is a divided four-lane.

We had a great time walking on the trail along the Roaring Fork River. We have kids 7 and 11 and they enjoyed as well. The trail is 38 miles long and goes all the way to Aspen.

We liked it so much we spent some of our vacation time looking at real estate. People are friendly and you can tell the Chambers, etc. work hard to keep the area a garden spot. Great place to base a week trip as you can drive to Aspen, Vail, etc.

This valley is what people dream of when they think Colorado. Beautiful mountains, trees, wild flowers, animals, and more. There is always something to do, not matter what time of year you visit.

Very beautiful - watch the locals exceeding the speed limit by 30+ mph - even in the snow - and falling rocks. If you get lucky, you will see the Big Horn sheep. VERY impressive!

take a drive up the valley to Redstone and Marble. In the winter a newly fallen snow on the red rocks makes for a great photo opportunity and Redstone a good place for lunch and a walk through a unique town. In the summer take the side road to Marble and look at the Yule mine where the marble for... More

Interesting hike with a good trailhead on Palmer Ave. Best time to see it is the couple of weeks before Halloween when the Historical Society tells the stories of how the person came to be in Glenwood and to be buried there.

I walked the trail with my dog and since it is paved you can also ride a bike or go with a baby in a stroller. The crystal clear water and the views of mount sopris are wonderful. It's not a difficult walk at all, during the summer parking at times can be an issue but worth it. Nothing more... More

After all the rains, it was wonderfully green in the foothills of the Rockies. This is a great place to visit, to hike and bike and kayak.
