Great trail close by and you have the option to run or walk which is great for training! Family friendly.

The beginning of the actual hiking trail was strenuously steep. Taking the gravel road is much easier but we alternate. Great views and fun hike.

Great hike with the kids!

It was really really nice, I highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a nice calm ride up the Colorado river.

Breath taking ride through the Canyon. Try a weekday ride to avoid the crowds. it was an east to moderate ride. few hills and paved all the way.

five stars for the view. Its actually a tough hike. All up hill. Take the road or the trail to the top to the cross. Winter time bring a sled to slide down after snow shoeing up.

Wow! Amazing hike! Great views of Glenwood and Carbondale. The road is icy in the winter but that doesn't stop anyone from hiking it! If you try, make sure you have some sort of traction device on your shoes (like Yaktrax) and ski poles help too. Climing 1700' feet in elevation is intense, so bring lots of water and don't be afraid to stop if you need a break.

great hike, finding trail head, tricky. Views of the valley are very nice. Option of crisscrossing the road on marked trails really add to the experience.

Rented a bike and rode this paved trail. Follows the river the entire way. Great bike ride!

Great bike ride even for novices! My son and I rode the 13 miles or so from Biar Ranch to downtown Glenwood Springs. We used Sunlight Ski and Bike Shop in town. They drove us to the starting point, and we rode back. We rented bikes and paid for the shuttle. I haven't been on a bike in years, so I was nervous that it was going to be too much. It was a lovely ride - nice and smooth for most of the ride. There were a few inclines that got us, and we ended up getting off our bikes and walking them up the hill. There are a few spots to stop for a picnic and to use the restroom along the way. Overall, it was a great trip! I was tired when we were done, but it was well worth it.

Very scenic trail. Trail is mostly paved and well maintained. Clean rest areas. Bike path can be busy, but still lots of fun.
