Romantic Things to Do

Glenwood Springs is the perfect little mountain town and the couples’ destination you have been searching for. Connect over dozens of hiking and biking trails, or bond through heart-pumping activities and breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains. 

Hanging Lake is a couple’s favorite, but it’s also a busy one as a result! Be sure to check out the visitor center page for permit and seasonal information. Red Mountain is another romantic hike just west of town, offering a moderate hike up switchbacked dirt roads and spectacular views to take in with the one you love.

For a less vigorous experience, you can take the Glenwood Canyon Recreation trail by foot or bike up to 14 miles east along the Colorado River. Or try walking or biking on the Rio Grande Trail, which travels 42 miles up the valley to Aspen.
