“A Fun Ride”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

The trail winds itself along the river, following I-70 pretty much the entire way. You can rent bikes in Glenwood, and they'll even take you to the top of the canyon and simply roll the 16 miles back to town.

“Exceptionally scenic”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

13 miles each way if you do it all but no need to enjoy one of the prettiest places there is. The path is well graded with a few short steeper sections. No need for an off road bike.

“Super Views and a Nice Trail System”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

I took my road bike out the morning we left and road from Glenwood Springs to the east trailhead and back- gorgeous canyon, nice trail, and some interesting places to pass by- hydro-electric powerplant, I-70 tunnels.

“Excellent experience”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

A well-maintained (paved), level trail that takes you through the heart of the Glenwood canyon. Lots of places to explore. Highly recommended for anyone spending time in Glenwood Springs; bring your bike, or there are plenty places to rent. There can be lots of bikes on the trail in the summer, but the trail is well built and has lots of capacity.

“Fantastic trail”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Was a great trail that cuts though the canyon alongside the river the whole way. Is really neat how you go under the freeway at times. Was not bothered by the interstate noise. Was fun to watch the rafters going down the river alongside us. We had our own bikes along and Canyon Bike Rental trailered our bikes and us up to the trailhead for $18 per bike. Take your time and enjoy this beautiful trail.
