This is nice, mostly level paved trail that starts in the city and can connect with other trails (some paved, some dirt). Beautiful scenery along the river. It is also a bike trail and dog friendly (dogs on leash).

The first thought that came to my mind when I encountered the Rio Grande Trail in Colorado was: Why doesn't every state, particularly Illinois, have one of these? As someone who thinks bicyclists tread too much on pedestrians and automobile drivers, the Rio Grande Trail...More

You will pass by a few towns. We stopped and had lunch in Basalt- that is where I would check for hotels and B&Bs...kind of a mid point on the trail. We stopped for coffee @ Bonfire Roasters in Carbondale, another cute town.
