High water closes section of Glenwood Canyon bike path

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — High water from the start of the seasonal mountain runoff prompted Colorado Department of Transportation officials to close a section of the Glenwood Canyon bike path on Tuesday afternoon.

The path between the Shoshone put-in and the Hanging Lake trailhead will remain closed until further notice, CDOT spokeswoman Tracy Trulove said.

“We will monitor the situation daily, but for now that section is closed,” Trulove said.

It’s possible that other sections of the path could also be closed at times during the spring runoff season, she said.
