We took a drive from Glenwood Springs toward Aspen on Rte 82, through the town of Carbondale and out into the valley. The scenery is just stunning and we would have gone further given more time. There is also a biking/walking trail that goes along...More
If you have a couple of hours I highly recommend you take a drive through the Roaring Fork Valley. Stop along the way and enjoy any number of scenic overlooks or hiking trails!

So much to do from rafting, fly fishing, mountain biking, skiing and hiking. It has it all. Plenty of free things to do including outdoor concerts

Excellent condition, beautiful setting, borderline crazy greens. Lots of fun and holes 10-13 are unlike anything else. Great views. Friendly staff. Make sure to check it out!
