The Colorado River Trail is an out and back trail that starts near the Grand Lake Golf Course and ends at the Colorado River. There are many short but exciting singletrack bike trails that crisscross the Colorado River Trail, making an endless number of loops that can be done in this trail network.

All the trails are surrounded by dead or cut down trees. Not an interesting hike at all.

It's a nice mild hike, nothing too steep or too hazardous. There's a lot of criss-crossing trails to choose from, we followed the River Trail, which has a nice payoff. It seemed like there were a lot of cars in the parking lot, but we only ran into two people and a family of mountain bikers. Downside: there is a lot of fallen timber & logging, and swaths of it are kinda depressing to see. Saw two deer, plenty of chipmunks, but no moose or bears.
