“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I am a cynic and didn't think a twenty mile bike ride would be worth the time and effort....boy was I wrong, I cannot emphasize the necessity of this trail for scenic beauty. I would come around the corner and say it can't get any more beautiful and it did!

“Great to do in sections or the whole thing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This trail is an amazing place to ride. Full of beautiful sights and very peaceful. Make sure to check and see if it is open however because the river can rise and make part of the trail impassable.

“Varying terrain and views make this fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Much of the time, this is right next to the Interstate and you deal with the noise and the exhaust. But it offers great views, places to take a rest by the river and some uphill challenges so you know you are exercising.

“Different perspective”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Have driven through the canyon for years, but riding bikes along the trail gives you a totally different perspective. We rode round trip from in town to the Bair Ranch rest area and back. Took a picnic lunch and had a beautiful fall day enjoying this beautiful canyon.

“great scenery, terrible concrete”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you're cycling down river and can only turn your head to the left, it's beautiful. Unfortunately, on your right for most of the trip is an ugly concrete retaining wall and the ever-present elevated motorway.

Still worth the trip (I hired a bike through Glenwood Adventure Company who took me up to the trail head so I could ride back) but don't expect pristine wilderness.
