The trail, either walking or by bike is spectacular. High canyon walls and the roar of the Colorado combine to create a magical journey.

I have bikes all over the world, and all over Colorado as well. This is the most scenic bike path I have ever ridden. In all honesty. It's just about the most scenic bike ride I have ever ridden. It is an absolute must do.

If you don't have your own bikes with you, there are places to rent bikes and most will drive you to the top of the canyon so you just have to ride down hill. The uphill direction is never too steep, so riding both ways...More

We biked this paved, smooth trail from Glenwood Springs about 8 miles up river in 1.5 hours. We turned around and it took 1 hour to get back. It's a great trail in the bottom of the canyon, next to the road and river.

Bike rentals around are pricey, buy or bring your own. Safety first with hydration and cover. Bring your camara. Terrific views. Parking can be challenging, bring patience..

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!

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
