Glenwood Canyon bike path –  closed from No Name to Dotsero

 

TRAIL UPDATE

CDOT & USFS have continued to keep the Glenwood Canyon Bike Path closed (from Dotsero to Glenwood Springs) due to a mudslide that occurred on 7/29.  As of the last official update that we received, the rock and debris went across the highway and onto the bike path in multiple locations. There are also multiple locations where the bike path is now underwater due to the debris in the river. At this time, it looks likely that the closure of the Glenwood Canyon Bike Path will likely continue through the end of our 2021 season. If the closure lifts we will run all of our operations as normal in Glenwood Canyon.

However, if this closure remains in place, we will be moving all biking shuttles and recommending rentals to the Rio Grande Bike Path. If you are scheduled on the Shuttle and are interested in biking the Rio Grande Bike Path your reservation and meeting time remain unchanged. 

Additionally, if you are travelling to Glenwood Springs from the east (Eagle/Vail area), please contact us by phone so that we can provide more information, as your travel to Glenwood will be significantly impacted.

Please contact us at 970-945-6605 if you have questions and thank you for your understanding.
