You can’t beat the scenery that you see as you ride on this trail. Lots of opportunities for photos. The trail is designed more for taking a leisurely ride at a lower rate of speed (less than 15 mph). At higher speeds you get the...More

We rented bikes in Glenwood Springs and were dropped off to cycle back towards town. It's a lovely ride by the river (just look at the photos everyone has posted) and though the noise from the road is sometimes noticeable it doesn't get in the...More

The whole family did the round trip bike ride, definitely runs close to the road so it can be noisy but the scenery is worth it. Rent bikes from Blue Sky Adventures and take a picnic with you. More downhill on the way back to...More

This is a good bike trail, but it seems to narrow at select points so keep away from the freeway wall. Yes, you are near the freeway most of the time, but it didn't seem to bother us.

Absolutely stunning trail. Follows along the Colorado River between I-70 and RR tracks. I would guess no more that a 3% grade. Just don't go as far west as No Name as it gets very hilly from there to Glenwood Springs.

I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could - the views in the canyon are tremendous! But being right next to the highway was a noisy letdown. It can also get pretty hot in Glenwood Springs - hotter than we expected. Don't overdo it with...More

We had a great time on the bike trail along the Colorado River! There were parts of the river where the whitewater rafters were bouncing up in the air above the water and we were safely biking along watching them scream... in a good way,...More

This spectacular trail follows the Colorado River in Glenwood Canyon. It is slightly uphill leaving Glenwood Springs, about 13 miles to the end. So making it a 26 mile round trip from town is relatively easy. there are only 2 hills coming back. Bike rentals...More

It depends on weather. Once snow falls, you don't want to be riding a bike on the trail. Also, as the water rises in the Colorado River, the trail closes, as part of it becomes submerged in the river. Last year, the snow... More
