Directions to Glenwood Caverns

Flying to Glenwood Springs, Colorado
Several Colorado airports serve Glenwood Springs where Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is located: Denver International Airport (DIA), Grand Junction Regional Airport, Vail/Eagle County Airport (winter season only) and Aspen/Pitkin County Airport.

Midwesterners are among our most frequent out-of-state visitors and getting here is all part of the adventure for families on vacation. The quickest route to traverse the nearly 1,200 miles (an 18-hour drive) is to take I-80 across Illinois, Ohio and Nebraska before entering the Northeast corner of Colorado. From I-80, take I-76 to I-70 to Glenwood Springs, then follow the directions for arriving from the east.

For our guests hailing from Missouri, getting to Glenwood Caverns is as easy as hopping on I-70 and heading west for approximately 760 miles. Along the way, you’ll pass through Denver—the Mile High City—as you travel westward, it won’t be long before you’re surrounded by the majesty of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Continue on, following the directions for arriving from the east.

Arriving from the east (Denver)
Drive west on I-70. From Denver, you’ll pass by famous mountain ski towns and go over high alpine passes. Glenwood Caverns is located approximately 160 miles of west of Denver and 60 miles west of Vail, Colorado. Well-maintained roads make this route a beautiful and easy drive year-round. In winter, it’s always a good idea to check road and weather conditions. As you approach Glenwood Springs you’ll travel through Glenwood Canyon, one of the most stunning stretches of highway in the western US. In Glenwood Springs take the second Glenwood Springs exit, Exit 114 and follow the map to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

A significant portion of our guests come from the west coast of sunny California and the beehive state of Utah.  When they arrive they’re ready for an extraordinary mountain-top adventure. The 860-mile drive from the coast takes about 13 hours via I-15N and I-70 east. From Salt Lake City via I-70, it’s 370 miles and a little less than six hours. As you get closer, follow the directions from Grand Junction.
