DescriptionThe Jeanne Golay trail, named for the Olympic cyclist who now resides in Glenwood Springs and can often be found training on this trail, meanders up steep Red Mountain to the summit. From the top, the views of the valley floor, the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers and Mount Sopris make the climb worth the effort. The scrub oak forest turns to evergreen and aspen as the elevation increases, and lucky hikers may see a fox, deer, and several species of birds.
