The views will take your breath away, with the beautiful river and mountains bursting with colors! It is one of the best ways to see Western Colorado.

This bike trail runs along the river in the beautiful canyon, and most of it is paved! What's not to like about that?!? Goes for several miles, but check their web site, as parts of the trail can be closed depending on the level of the river? Even kids can do this!

Hopped on the bike path at the No Name rest stop and rode east to the end of the canyon and back. Easy grade. Clean. Plenty of places to stop and admire the canyon.Wonderful ride. Road noise was not bad.

Very easy gentle bike path...not a difficult or challenging ride. There are a couple of funky corners, so do keep to the right! Very nice path for riders that don't want to work too hard.

This beautiful scenic bike ride along the Colorado River is about 13 miles on a good paved path. If you're interested in a hike as well bring a bike lock and you can park your bike at Hanging Lake trailhead and hike up to the beautiful waterfall. Or just leisurely ride into Glenwood Springs for an ice cream cone. Watch... More

We were not sure if this was something that we would enjoy as we are not big mountain bikers, but you don't have to be a mountain biker as the trail is wide, flat (mostly down hill) and all cement. It borders the Colorado River and you will see wildlife, majestic beauty, river rafters. It is not crowded and there... More

The trail goes on for miles and is wonderful for a run or a bike ride. I didn't really like running it early in the am. It seemed a bit remote and spooky, plus you run by a rest area. So if you are a female - bring your pepper spray with you, I would next time.

This trail is extremely well paved and is great for riding bikes. We ended up walking on it to get to the Hanging Lake Trail head because we could not get parking, but if you were to ride your bike, it goes past the trail head and all the way to Glenwood Springs and past. It runs right along the... More

The trail winds along the river and under Interstate 70. It is a nice paved path but very noisy due to traffic noise. Beautiful river but be aware of the constant noise.
