I rode my bike on a 10 mile section around Carbondale and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The path is beautifully and smoothly paved and has stunning views throughout. It's mostly flat with slight variations in elevation.

This is walk that can be easy or more difficult. It is mainly flat, along the river; but, you can make it more strenuous by walking more miles The scenery is gorgeous all along the walk.

I rode bikes on this trail. We stopped often for photo ops. The trail was an easy downhill trail. We were rewarded with a great lunch at Woody Creek Tavern at the end. We got a ride back to Aspen.

We rented our bikes (and subsequently bought them, since we come every year and have a residence interest at the Ritz) from Four Mountain Sports. The rental and subsequent purchase were quite reasonable. (970) 920-2337
