We took the shuttle up the mountain, once at the top road our bikes even further up, then road down the mountain. The view was beautiful and you could go at your own pace.

Gorgeous place to view all the natural beauty and rivers! So nice that it is accessible and easy for all levels, yet you can get a great workout jogging or biking as well. Wonderful photo ops!

one of the easier, scenic rides you'll find! Rent a bike or grab your sneakers and head to the Canyon!! You can see rafters, stop at picnic areas if you take provisions and you can refill your water bottle at the rest areas

The driver for the shuttle was helpful and gave some advice on where to eat and what other sites to see. The ride itself was great, but I would be hesitant if you had smaller kids who might be wobbly on a bike. There are...More

Which direction? East past Hanging Lake Trail yes. It will be predominantly up hill out. Next to a river all the way. You could lock your bikes and do the trail too. South to Aspen is about 80 miles round trip. Probably... 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
