One morning, we decided to walk along the bike trail. We wanted to enjoy seeing the Colorado River first-hand, and the beautiful mountain views. We were rewarded with both. The path followed alongside the river for miles. The bikers and the walkers were very respectful of each other along the pathway. There were plenty of trees and foliage to offer shade. We took pictures of the lovely wildflowers we encountered. We also saw some beautiful murals that had been painted on the bridges and rock walls along the way. I would recommend that everyone take the time to walk or bike this beautiful trail in Glenwood Springs.

So incredibly beautiful!! Only thing we would have done different is brought a picnic lunch so we didn't have to leave. The canyon is breathtaking and it's so fun getting to watch all the groups going down the river on their rafts!!

This is a must if you like to ride bikes and want to enjoy the canyon! The trail is not hard and is all cement. It winds along the river and through the awesome gigantic red cliffs! This is closed at times of high water, so check first before planning your day. There are numerous bike rental options in Glenwood if you don't want to bother with bringing your own! TAKE LOTS OF WATER!

This was our second time on the bike trail and we really enjoy it. The scenery is beautiful. The only downfall this time, was that part of the bike trail was closed this time. Looking forward to doing it again next time.

I have both walked and biked this trail - either way is fantastic. You really feel miniscule when walking amongst the towering canyon walls and alongside the roaring river. Unfortunately part of the trail is closed (due to flooding/high waters) - beginning just east of Hanging Lake - you can still walk/bike from Glenwood Springs to Hanging Lake which is absolutely georgeous especially when the trail takes you away from I-70.
