“Beautiful Colorado River trail”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Walked 2 different parts of the trail. Took the No Name exit and checked out the new camping area and zip line and new bar and restaurant there. The Grizzly Creek exit is a great part of the Glenwood trail, nice easy walk along the river. Lots of construction on I-70 so Watch the exits.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

What a nice day to spend the afternoon! Great scenic trail through Glenwood Canyon. The ride along the river is beautiful and fun to stop and watch the rafters during the Spring and Summer months. Fairly easy family ride, pack a picnic and enjoy the river.

“AWSOME RIDE”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We checked in at the Colorado Hotel and they took us to the East end of the canyon. Then you can take your time going down the canyon along the river. There are many places to stop and enjoy the river. You have enough time to do Hanging Lake trail also. Then you end up back at the hotel. It was a great day!!!

“A Magic Bike Ride”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Unique trail. You won't find anything like this anywhere! Most enjoyable ride!
Note: if you are riding from Glenwood to Dotsero and back, be warned that, at least as of June 2013, there are no services in Dotsero. Take lunch!

“Not on a Saturday”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a fantastic scenic ride, offering a few mildly challenging stretches. It is more for a casual rider as the many pedestrians and twists of the path do not really let you get your heart rate up. Living in the area, I know better than to go on a Saturday, but even with that once you are away from the rest areas it is not too bad. If you want a scenic, mostly casual ride, this one is a good one.
