Description Suggest an Edit

The Big Dry Creek Trail is longest of Westminster's off-road trails, running 12 miles between Standley Lake and Interstate 25 northeast of Big Dry Creek Park in Denver's northern suburbs. The trail is generally flat, with short stretches of moderate grade. The trail passes among open space, parks and neighborhoods. At 99th Street, there is a short on-road section (appx 1 mile).

Parking and Trail Access

One of the easiest places to pick up the trail is at the Westminster Rec center, 104th and Sheridan, which is more or less central to the trail. Parking is available at Standley Lake Park, Westminster City Park (2 places), Westfield Village Park and Big Dry Creek Park.
