Rio Grande Trail

We rode the Trail from Carbondale to Aspen which is superb. The last few miles onto Aspen is quite beautiful and visiting Aspen is enjoyable. This trail should be recognized as Hall of Fame trail!

Glenwood Canyon Trail

Awesome trail. E-bike. 8 miles are only open due to mud slide debris. But had a good time. 1st day biking and altitude is higher than I expected. Hot weather lots of water.

Rio Grande Trail

The best way to see the valley!

May, 2021 by tapioniskanen47

There is no better way to see the Roaring Fork valley than along the Rio Grande; no traffic and endless miles of beautifully maintained paved trails. Bring your fly-rod; a lot of gold medal fishing fronts the trail!

Rio Grande Trail

Spectacular Fall Ride

September, 2020 by kjvlasis

We rode from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and back in a day. The fall colors were beautiful. We did not know the paved part ended at the railway car homes. Dirt road was rideable even on road bikes. While everyone that we ran across was pretty respectful of announcing themselves when passing, we did run into a lot of e-bike rental users who were flying down the dirt section without announcing themselves or care of other users on the dirt road.

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

16 miles each way - but a great ride thru the Canyon

July, 2020 by grundberg

We came from Vail and parked in Dotsero at the trailhead - follow signs for Glenwood Springs Trailhead where the road dead ends. Took the pedestrian bridge over to the restaurant area of Glenwood for lunch before heading back.

South Canyon Trail

Stink, Stank, Stunk

July, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Glenwood Springs, CO
Parking: South Canyon Bridge & Devereux Rd
Trail Condition: S Canyon Bridge segment (western) is wide paved trail with a lot of debris thrown on to it from the adjacent interstate, needs maintenance. The eastern segment has nice wide path and well maintained.
Signage: None
Comments: Not much to say about the S. Canyon Bridge segment (western), it is short and unmaintained. TrailLink map implies that the old bridge can be accessed but is not the case anymore. A metal bar has been placed across the bridge entrance. A faded signs states no jumping from bridge and close by is a memorial site for a young man, did he jump from the bridge? The eastern segment travels behind a number of businesses and hotels, with the river on the other side of the trail. There are lots of shade trees, some benches, and picnic tables. At the western end of this segment of trail there is a sewage treatment plant and you go right past the nasty smelling tank with icky brown sludge being stirred up. On a warm day it is not a place you want to be. The trails at the edge of the interstate.

Midland Avenue Trail

Good Connector

July, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Glenwood Springs, CO
Parking: Devereux Rd
Trail Condition: Western end of trail is newer and trail condition is excellent, wide and concrete. Towards the east the trail is fine but with some cracking.
Signage: Good directional signs.
Comments: This is a good connector trail from west Glenwood Springs to downtown Glenwood Springs and other trails in that area. There are several underpasses and a new overpass to avoid busy streets into the Glenwood Meadows shopping district. Some minor uphill and downhill. It worthy of a ride.

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

Must Do This One

July, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Glenwood Springs, CO
Trail Condition: Overall trail condition is very good with some portions better/newer than others but no major issues.
Signage: Some directional signs. Plus a number of interpretive signs about the history & geology of the canyon.
Comments: I did this trail a number of years ago and wanted to do again. It still is worth repeated visits. This time was on a Friday and not as much traffic as a weekend but still plenty of users. I measured distance of 16 miles from entrance next to vapor caves to the trailhead at the eastern end of canyon. This includes the portion of road at No Name. Next time I’ll start trail at eastern trailhead in the morning when winds are calm through the canyon, then on return trip the winds can pick-up and push me back to start. There were lots of rafters on the river to watch. Even caught one of them mooning the Amtrak train as it passed through the canyon.

Rio Grande Trail

Aspen to Carbondale

June, 2020 by janet.l.evans

Janet and I were staying in Willits, across CO82 from Basalt. We took the VelociRFTA bus to Aspen with our Brompton folding bikes, and rode down 23 miles to Willits on the trail. The next day we rode to Carbondale and back. The trail has been improved since we rode it in 2011, with more paving, and the section that was on county rd 100 is now on separate paved trail. There is still the section near Aspen that is crushed gravel -- no problem. This is such a pleasant ride.

Brush Creek Trail (CO)

Not a Good Trail for Inline

September, 2019 by taylor.stehlik

Very hilly (for an inline skater) with curves and stop signs at the bottom of the hill. I would not recommend this trail for Inline Skaters.
