Great for dogs. Not at all busy in the off-season. Be aware of curves as bikers can be moving quickly.

This is a must do activity. The path is next to the river. So there are great views all along the path.

The Vail Bike Path does meander through Vail village along the creek (as many other reviewers have covered) which is very scenic. The path continues east out of town by the golf course and continues UP to Vail Pass (about 13-14 miles east of town)....More

The path is suitable for bikes or walking. I am not sure the length of the trail, but it will take you thru some very pretty areas.

Oh yeah! Though there may be times that there are more riders than other times, I can't imagine there being so many riders that you would feel unsafe. The trail is wide enough to accommodate a large number of people.
