Rio Grande Trail - Review

One of the more scenic, peaceful and environment-friendly ways to move between Aspen and Glenwood Springs is by hiking on the Rio Grande Trail. The 42-mile trail was previously a railway line between the two winter towns that was converted when the line fell out of operation. The trail is accompanied by the Roaring Fork river for almost all its distance. At some points, the trail intersects the road but apart from that, it is almost entirely quiet and serene. You will often see bicyclists venturing down from one town to the other on this path. Since it is a dog-friendly trail, there are plenty of four-legged members on the track. Autumn is one of the best times to visit the trail thanks to the gorgeous colours. In winter, you will often see skiers on the various patches.
