Colorado National Monument

This trail lasts for 46 miles on the Colorado National Monument and it stretches from Grand Junction to Fruita. It does cost $3 for bicycles but it is very worth it because of the spectacular views you get of the National Monument. The traffic is pretty slow so there aren’t many hazards unless you are afraid of heights. There are many rolling hills along the path making it a bit difficult but well worth the effort.

Glenwood Canyon Trail

This trail is 32 miles along I-70 and the Colorado River and it is completely paved and full of spectacular views. There are a few blind curves and the trail is very popular so caution must be observed throughout the trail. The ride is very easy and only increases 500 feet. This is one of the most popular trails in all of Colorado.
