GLENWOOD SPRINGS — The popular Glenwood Canyon bike path has opened for the season, from the winter-time gate just below the No Name Rest area to the east end of the canyon.

The Colorado Department of Transportation closes the path each winter due to snow removal and other maintenance activities on Interstate 70 through the canyon, which can create unsafe conditions on the path.

It may be necessary for CDOT to close the path again this spring for safety reasons, depending on high water in the Colorado River due to runoff from the high-country snow melt.

For information about road conditions, including bike path closures, visit, or call 511 from anywhere in the state.
