Glenwood is the jumping off point for visitors arriving by highway (I-70) or train (Amtrak Station) and headed for the world renown ski areas of Aspen/Snowmass. Attractions unique to Glenwood are the hot mineral baths, located right downtown and visible from the Interstate, as well as classic one-of-a-kind accommodations such as the historic Hotel Colorado.

The air was fresh, the water cold, the weather cool and sunny…the perfect hour long hike. The dogs loved it too!

    Hi, Lyn,

    Have been enjoying your videos. I was born in Glenwood Springs. My grandparents helped develop that town. Owned the Hideout Campground and several other properties. My mom was the Head Desk clerk at the Hotel Colorado, and I cleaned the rooms. Beautiful town, gorgeous location on the western slope at the confluence of the Colorado and Roaring Fork rivers. And I’ve ridden the California Zephyr from California to Glenwood. We also used to ride it to Denver for shopping trips. Of course, that was before they built the Loveland tunnel. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Doc! Good to hear from you.
    We have traveled on the City of New Orleans from Memphis to New Orleans and back in a private sleeper compartment and it was great! We have yet to travel the Zephyr on the Glenwood route.

    I recently went on the Zephyr from Glenwood to Denver -through the most amazing scenery EVER! Then to Lincoln for a couple of days and then on to Galesburg. I did a magic convention in IL and then came all the way back to Glenwood. I highly recommend the sleeper it makes such a difference and the meals are included…not a bad deal and a great way to travel! You can’t be in a hurry… but if you are somewhat flexible it is terrific…
