Amazing ride, very easy and relaxing. The ride towards Woody Creek Tavern was easy, but the bike back was not as bad as they say...

Lots of bikers of all kinds. We ride from Aspen to Basalt and then halfway to glenwood springs until we saw a locked gate and mountain lion warning. Great vista views made for a nice 52 mile day. Would definitely do again.

Great trail for beginners, either hiking or biking. Flat and long ( 40 miles if you want ), with creeks, great landscaping and excelent paving.

We rented our bikes (and subsequently bought them, since we come every year and have a residence interest at the Ritz) from Four Mountain Sports. The rental and subsequent purchase were quite reasonable. (970) 920-2337
