One of my all time favorite bike rides. Get up close to the majestic Colorado river as it changes personality - rapids, calm. Seeing the amazing engineering of the highway through the canyon is an added bonus - constructed to minimize blasting the canyon. Finally, you get views of the steep canyon walls, which seem to change as the sun crosses the sky and shadows play.

Walking it? Maybe. Bike out and back yourself, or use a shuttle service from Glenwood Springs.
