Rode from Glenwood Springs to Hanging Lake which was approximately 11-12 miles. We left from Two Rivers Park where we were able to park the car. The path begins on a concrete path and leaves he park at a traffic light. Cross the street and pedal up to 6th street and take a right. Continue straight past the Hotel Colorado... More

Took my father and his friends in their sixties. We rode the 19 miles from Dotsero downhill (among the river) to the hot springs in town. They had the time of their lives. Gorgeous Gorges!

We really enjoyed this ride. We went from the Bair Ranch rest area to Glenwood Springs and back. We had a nice picnic lunch in the canyon. We had our young son with us and he did fine with the distance. Glad we saved our money and didn't pay to be dropped off at the top. It is noisy near... More

Great ride. And if you don't have a bike the rental shop is a block or two away from the trail head.

This was an amazing ride ride along the river! Im not a big bike rider, but the trail was well maintained and wide. It's all down hill and very scenic - we even stopped to watch people white water rafting and also stopped to do the Hanging Lake Hike - all in all a great day! We rented our bikes... More

Rented bikes in GS and rode to Hanging Lake, which was over crowed and not the hike for us. Loved riding along the Colorado River and seeing the rafters + the wild flowers. The ride on I-70 wasn't as much fun but it's only a mile. Enjoy!

trail was generally well maintained with a few rough spots. There were nice canyon walls and river views, but the trail was a bit too close to freeway

We found this place a few years ago. We loved it so much we did it again! Most of it is down hill. Lots of places to stop and site see along the way. There is a hiking trail that is beautiful, but it is very steep. They will give to a lock for the bikes. We stopped to get... More

We rented bikes from Hotel Colorado, and their shuttle dropped us 14 miles up the canyon. We rode for about three hours to get back to town, including many stops along the way. The very last bit involved a short bit on residential roads, but the bulk of the trip was on paved trails along the river. Although we were... More
