Misty S. on Red Rocks Trail
Great short hike close to Boulder. Would definitely do this trail again if I'm short on time. Not very busy at all on a Thursday afternoon, which is a nice change for Boulder. The rock formations were beautiful and fun to climb.
Rode the trail from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and back. Right now there is a detour due to mountain lion activity that starts past Carbondale and puts you back on the trail in Basalt. Detour takes you out on the roads, but is well marked. When you come into Aspen the last few miles are gravel. There is always a strong headwind when coming back from Aspen to Glenwood.
Lovely trail, and really not too much traffic on a Fri mid day. Very mild grades. Everyone from my 4 year old on his little one speed to my wife on her racing bike enjoyed it. Some shade, but not a lot. We went from Glenwood springs to Carbondale.
