Picturesque ride along the Colorado River. Really enjoyed the sounds of the river rapids and watching the rafters pass by.

Nice paved trail. We took shuttle 14 miles up and hiked hanging lake trail on the way down. Bike trail had moderate traffic in mid afternoon but little traffic late afternoon early evening. Highway noise.
