Easy to moderate trail alongside Creek. Very easy to navigate through the canyon. One of my favorites.

Walked along the river 2.5 miles in and back. The hills were fun! Hardly anyone on the trails! Perfect fall day!

Best hike in Glenwood Springs. Very peaceful and runs along the water. We went 2.5 miles in, for a round trip of 5 miles. Other hikers told us there wasn't an amazing apex of the hike, and the beauty was really along the trail. We loved it and will do
it again.

Good climb along a mountain stream. Trail ends at a water pipe.

Great trail for dogs and their humans! Loved it! I saw lots of dogs off leash and some on leash. I know lots of trails say on leash only but.... I think if your dog is well behaved you will love it, that is of course if you are a dog lover

Great trail! If you love water, this hike will inspire you. It is challenging going up so keep that in mind but worth it!

Easy hike. Beautiful canyon follows Grizzly creek.

We have our 2y/o in a backpack, and his tolerance limits our hikes, so we didn't complete the whole length of this trail. It was beautiful to hike next to the river, though it was quite high and the path runs very close to it in spots, so we didn't let our toddler hike.

Gorgeous hike but anti-climatic

Awesome trail with varied terrain along the creek. Point to point is 4.3 miles, not what it says in the trail description. Took me 3 hours to hike the entire trail. The first mile is perfect for families and kids because it is not steep and is right by the river. The next 3 miles are so worth it if your up to it though!

The creek is just beautiful. The canyon was very green and we loved the flowers. We went in early May. Not as difficult as hanging lake.
