Glenwood Getaway Professional Review and Guide
"There’s a ton and a half of riding possibilities in the rocky foothills and forested slopes east of Richfield; this ride is a proverbial drop in the bucket. Richfield possesses an ambience that makes it feel rather like a less developed version of Moab, to the extent of red-rock bluffs rising over the west edge of town. Aerobically, this 14-mile loop is rated easy to moderate; technically, it is easy, as you deal only with paved and well-graded gravel roads.
It’s a study in contrasts, with piñon, juniper, and scrub predominating at the upper elevations, whereas along the verdant wetland flats you’ll see cattails, cows, and Russian olive trees (mmmmm, they smell sooo good!). At about 11 miles into the ride, just past a ragged farmstead, on the right you’ll notice an old rock-and-timber corral that blends exquisitely into its surroundings—primarily because it’s constructed of its surroundings. General location: Begins and ends in Glenwood, 5 miles east of Richfield."
