Roaring Fork Guide | Glenwood Springs Excursion
For something a little different, take a ride “down valley” with Snow Limo. Discover the rich heritage of the Roaring Fork region, gain access to some of Colorado’s most fascinating natural features – the Colorado River, Glenwood Canyon and the Glenwood Hot Springs – and bask in the splendor that makes this Rocky Mountain region so appealing.
The Roaring Fork Valley is a narrow, 42-mile stretch of bountiful landscape that follows along the Roaring Fork River. In summer, if you choose to travel along Independence Pass, you will enter through Aspen, the infamous, culturally revived Colorado mining town. From Aspen, the road leads north – while the grade gently slopes downhill all the way. At the northern gateway to the valley, where Highway 82 connects with Interstate 70, you’ll find the charmingly historic town of Glenwood Springs.
As you will discover, the moderate drive from Aspen to Glenwood Springs affords views of commanding mountain peaks, patchwork ranchlands, and lush river valley. Letting Snow Limo do the driving means you will be able to sit back and relax in comfort while enjoying our rich, historical narration.
No trip to the Aspen area is complete without taking in all of the natural beauty and summertime adventure offered here. New experiences are calling, enticing you to make the jaunt to Glenwood Springs. We’ve listed a few of our favorite attractions below. Snow Limo is happy to work with you on selecting a combination to make the most of your visit.
