We rode the valley on bicycles from Aspen to Glenwood. Rio Grande Trail was awesome, 42 miles seemed a breeze. Detour took us past Woody Creek Tavern, that was cool!!! Caught the Roaring Fork Transportation bus in Glenwood, rode bus for 2 hours and got off in Aspen.

We took a drive from Glenwood Springs toward Aspen on Rte 82, through the town of Carbondale and out into the valley. The scenery is just stunning and we would have gone further given more time. There is also a biking/walking trail that goes along the creek and road. They look toward impressive Mt Sopris and the Maroon Bells at... More

If you have a couple of hours I highly recommend you take a drive through the Roaring Fork Valley. Stop along the way and enjoy any number of scenic overlooks or hiking trails!

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

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.
