Description

This mostly flat, well-traveled trail parallels Trail Ridge Road (US 34) for about two miles before turning westward and linking up with River Trail. Given its proximity to the road, travelers can expect to hear road noise for most of the trail's duration.

By utilizing the Valley Trail, River Trail and the River-Valley Connector, one can create various low-difficulty loops.
