Carbondale, CO – Art

The Rio Grande ARTway is a 1 mile section along the Rio Grande Trail in Carbondale designed to showcase the town’s creative arts and history. The ARTway stretches from Snowmass Drive and Main Street to the trail’s intersection with Highway 133 (West Elk Loop Scenic Byway) and includes three zones: the Roll Zone, the Stroll Zone, and the Ol’ Zone.
