This is a great paved multi use path. The scenery is exceptional and awe inspiring. The only problem is tourists who do not use bike path etiquette—-meaning, stay on your side and be mindful of faster bikers trying to pass you. Summit county recently gave...More

I loved this ride and would return to Vail just to experience it again. We rode downhill for a number of miles enjoying the fall weather, the aspens, the river and the mountains. Beautiful!

Riding up to the top of Vail Pass from Frisco is a lot of fun if you are fit and used to the altitude, but climbing up nearly 1500' is no joke. There are several shuttle companies that will bring you to the top for...More

Fantastic bike trail. Very, very scenic and a very good distance from the road (which is I-70). Sometimes you can't even see it.
