I am into my 41st year of an ongoing love affair with this marvelous place. Where to start? Everywhere you look, it's beautiful. There are 4 directions in the RFV: Flat Tops, canyon, Red Mountain/Storm King and Sopris. Forget NSEW. The Flat Tops are like the Mama Mountain, often cradling her cloud babies, and crowned in fields of wild flowers... More

So much to do from rafting, fly fishing, mountain biking, skiing and hiking. It has it all. Plenty of free things to do including outdoor concerts

Our trip coincided with flow rates sufficient for fiberglass drift boating. What a river and what a lovely valley. Our drift ran from the Carbondale/Hwy 133 put-in to the Colorado River ramp in Glenwood Springs' Two Rivers Park

After a two-week road trip, we had crossed, been up, and hiked, several western streams in their valleys. Which is the most beautiful? Given a large group, each with their favorite drink (or, more generally in the context of Colorado, favorite legal substance) in hand, one could have a lively discussion. IMHO, pleasant as this valley may be, it's not... More

Excellent condition, beautiful setting, borderline crazy greens. Lots of fun and holes 10-13 are unlike anything else. Great views. Friendly staff. Make sure to check it out!

Moved here from Florida and was amazed at how beautiful the area was, Everyday from my kitchen I look out to Mt. Sopris, an almost fourteener, and am in awe, especially in the winter.

This valley is just beautiful. My husband loves to fish and I love just being in nature. Just listening to the river and watching the wildlife is amazing. Deer, eagles, chipmunk and squirrels all over the valley. Never disappointing no matter what time of year you are here.

There is so much to love in this 45 mile stretch of heaven from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and beyond to the top of Independence Pass. Each season is special from The deep fall colors of Aspen, Cottonwoods, Maples and oak brush. Then winter wonderland takes over the mountain peaks and valley floor. Cross country skiing, best downhill skiing in... More

From Glenwood Springs to Aspen, Maroon Bells, and over Independence Pass. Lots of Aspen viewing. Late September into the first two weeks of October is the best time to go.

Quaint little tourist type town along the Crystal River. Sit by the river and eat lunch. Pack our own lunch. Very peaceful.
