City of Glenwood Springs Wulfsohn Mountain Park

Julius Wulfsohn

Julius Wulfsohn was a prosperous Glenwood Springs dry-goods merchant who purchased much of the land between Red Mountain and the south bank of the Colorado River from Walter and Mary Devereux in 1910.

Devereux, a prominent figure in Glenwood Springs history, had earlier developed the Glenwood Hot Springs resort and the Hotel Colorado during the late 1800s. An opulently furnished three-story brick mansion called “Cedarbank,” built by Captain E. E. Prey in about 1885, stood on the property for many years until is was destroyed in 1959.

The Wulfsohn family ranched and farmed here for several decades before selling the property to Union Oil, which planned to use its associated water rights for oil shale development near Parachute in the early 1980s.

In 2002, the property was deeded to the city as part of the approval of the nearby Glenwood Meadows development. In June of that year, much of the vegetation was burned off during the Coal Seam fire, which also destroyed several homes in west Glenwood Springs. Since then, much of the Gambel oak and other foliage have been growing back quickly. Soon, the charred trees on the upper slopes will be some of the only reminders of that event.”

Convenient park if you live in town or looking to do a short lunch ride. For mountain biking specifically, Id say these trails are pretty bad. You will work hard up and down due to awkward trail design. There is little to no flow with lots of tight, awkward turns and awkward trail features. Unfortunately, pickings are slim for mountain biking in Glenwood.
