There are lots of running trails in Glenwood. “Most Popular” doesn’t always mean best, but it does mean these are the trails people are running a lot. Here are 5 of the most popular running trails in Glenwoood Springs:
The Rio Grande Trail is a nice wide paved path following the once Denver & Rio Grande Railroad route that you can run for miles along, all the way to Aspen.
Red Mountain Road is a great challenging run on a dirt road up Red Mountain. The Red Mountain Trail (Jeanne Golay Trail) weaves on and off the road which can make for a great mix of dirt road and trail running.
The Grizzly Creek Trail is a beautiful trail run escape in the Glenwood Canyon. The trail is relatively flat for the first mile following along Grizzly Creek before becoming more of a traditional trail run the the mountains.
