As mentioned in the comments below, this is a paved trail. They keep it plowed during the winter, and it’s a nice easy walk. Only giving it 3 stars because it’s not a hiking trail.

This is not a hiking trail, it is a paved recreation path through town. It does have some amazing views of both the river and 3 peaks, so it is a very beautiful path, but if you’re looking for an actual hike, this isn’t for you. Also, this trail is for the most part wheelchair friendly mostly flat with just a couple low sloping uphills. My husband is wheelchair bound and pushed the entire way.

WalkingGreat!

Very easy walk, all paved or wood bridge. Walk across the river the whole time. Really enjoyed this walk at night with the lights that made the path easy to see. Many people told us that it is not so rare to see a moose in the area, however, we were not so lucky.

Great little trail for my wife and 8-year-old daughter and me. a lot of congestion around the outlet mall but I think we expected that going into it.

Our family was able to hike fairly mud-free at a time when everything else is muddy. Just a small amount of snow. Parked right off Borealis Rd. and took it down to the river. It was not a paved road.

Great fly fishing from Dillon north to Colorado River. A few fun access points for a hike with kids along the river too!
