Not only is Glenwood Canyon spectacularly beautiful, the Colorado River through this section of it is a wild ride for whitewater rafters. Paddle through churning rapids, relax on stretches of flat water and, even take a dip in an in-river hot spring!

Glenwood Springs is a biking-friendly town for visitors of all ages and abilities. Paved trails with gentle grades that follow the rivers make for easy riding, while single track trails with steep inclines can be a challenge to even the most seasoned riders.
