When we couldn't get parking at Hanging Lake, we decided to park at the rest area off of exit 121. The paved trails are great and run next to the river. If you want to cycle to Hanging Lake you can. This area gets a...More

This bike trail follows along the river in Glenwood canyon. It is moderately steep mainly because of the length of the trail. There are areas where it is fairly flat and is not to difficult for the average bike rider. There are not facilities along...More

This is a fairly easy bike trip from Glenwood Springs heading east to the hydro dam on the Colorado River. In late spring or early summer the water in the river is roaring and is a site to behold as it moves over the large...More

The canyon offers beautiful views as it winds along the Colorado River. Rest areas provide restroom and picnic tables. Excellent walking or biking with multiple launch points.
