Get ready for a perfect riding path - scenery, fresh air, exercise, well groomed trail. Biking, hiking, or other activity. A smart and valuable asset for locals and tourists by Vail and nearby towns - this path connects many surrounding towns, mountains, creeks and lakes.

Husband and boys went on the path and had a great ride. Not difficult but do take water. It was nice views and highly recommend.

This is a must do activity. The path is next to the river. So there are great views all along the path.

Anytime of year it is awesome to walk the recreation path through town instead of taking the in-town. It is easier it walk in summer other than winter as you can see the path without the snow, however it is a great walk to get...More

Oh yeah! Though there may be times that there are more riders than other times, I can't imagine there being so many riders that you would feel unsafe. The trail is wide enough to accommodate a large number of people.
