“Love it!”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We've only biked it twice but it's a relatively easy trail and the views are spectacular. Would do it daily if I could!

“A bike ride with a million dollar view”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Simply majestic. 13 miles of never ending views. A great experience and can be enjoyed at any age. Rent a bike and glide Dian hill most of the way.

“Easy famiy ride”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We rode the 12 miles, downhill, from the Bair rest stop to the east of Glenwood Canyon. Was an easy ride for our tween kids, except for a killer uphill stretch at NoName. The bike path is a dedicated sidewalk except for the stretch between Glenwood Springs and NoName (which goes through a neighborhood).

The path is right along the Colorado River most of the way, which means it is right next to the highway, but it mostly below the highway and not too bad.

We have ridden it both ways in the past, and the path is a gentle uphill all the way from Glenwood to Bair. I was able to pull a 35 pound child in a bike carrier without too much trouble (I consider myself only moderately in shape...)

“Easy and great views”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We took a bike break midway and hiked Hanging Lake Trail. Would highly recommend doing both if you are in decent shape. The bike trail itself is easy and gorgeous through the canyon, although near the end there is a hill that can be particularly tough if you are biking during a hot day.

“Great ride!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We took this bike ride with rented bikes and a shuttle drop-off from Glenwood Adventure Company. It is a really nice ride along the river, and it goes right past the Hanging Lake trail so we stopped and climbed the trail. The only con is that the entire ride, you are also going along the expressway so you never get that nice "out in the country" feeling where you only hear the sound of the rushing water.
