A wonderful rail-trail in a beautiful location
Aug 2021
We rented eBikes from Four Mountain Sports in Aspen, and bicycled the Rio Grande trail from Aspen almost to Basalt, stopping at Woody Creek Tavern on the way back. The best part of the trail for us was between Aspen and Woody Creek, with the trail hugging the cliff side and the river far below, but wide enough to be safe and not stressful. The surprise waterfall alongside the trail was a nice bonus. People on the trail were friendly and happy and fun to talk with. We also really liked the mid-mount Trek eBikes that simply assist your pedaling rather than act like a moped.

We are a family of 4 with two teenage daughters and we all enjoyed our bike ride on the Rio Grande Trail. And we used free bikes from our hotel (Tyrolean Lodge) so it was super easy!

Great day out

We rented some e-bikes in glenwood and headed off to Aspen. We actually didn’t go all the way. We reached Basalt. It was over two hours there. We stopped at Carbondale and enjoyed a festival and market they had on. It was a total of about 4 hours of cycling.

We rented bikes to ride along the Rio Grande Trail in Aspen. The trailhead is easy to find. We enjoyed this trail so much that we went back a second time during our stay in Aspen. Much of the trail is along the river.

Just one of the Greatest Rides Ever !!!
Oct 2020
I Might of already wrote a Review on this Bike trail Before. But it is Simply one of our Favorites. Every year we Drive out from Fort Collins to go to My Sister's House in New Castle. Just so that we can Ride our Bikes on the Rio Grande Bike Trail. We Always wanted to Ride this Trail in October and this year we Finally Did. We came out the first week of October and the Colors were Fantastic. The Aspen Colors were amazing and I had to Stop Myself from taking so many Pictures so we could complete our Ride. We ride from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and Back. It's just over 80 Miles but such a FANTASTIC RIDE. We would Highly Recommend this Ride to Anyone. You just won't be Disappointed.

Awesome Ride!
Oct 2020
The ride from Aspen to Woody Creek tavern is great! It is so beautiful. There were still lots of fall leaves. There is a section that is packed gravel rather than paved, but I could ride it with a road bike. Put this on your "must do" list!

Enjoyable bike ride- open views
Sep 2020
Great paved trail. My wife and I road from Glenwood Springs down to Carbondale and back which was a perfect late morning ride. Small uphill grade all the way to Carbondale but then you get to coast back. Easy for relatively fit non-cyclists. Well-maintained and almost empty when we went on a Monday. Essentially no shade though- so make sure you have sunscreen.

Great for a run!
Sep 2020
This is such a nice trail for running/walking. Entrance is within walking distance from anywhere in Aspen.

Paved, well marked, with lovely river scenery. Like really really wonderful river views.

Some bikes, but the trail is wide enough to accommodate.

If you're looking for an easily accessible run "in town," you won't be disappointed.

Easy and beautiful hike with a black bear to make it exciting.

Beautiful scenery, a bubbling stream, and an easy hike or bike ride. And on this trip we even saw a black bear lumbering up the hillside to sample the neighboring trash cans.
