Platte River Trail

Great bird watching!

June, 2017 by dincy

A friend and I rode this trail a couple of weeks ago. Other than a detour between 96th and 104th, which really wasn't too bad, the trail is in good shape. It actually goes through to the north farther than the description listed in the trail guide. It now ends at 136th and Old Brighton Road.

Bear Creek Trail (Denver)

Gorgeous views but not worth the entry fee

May, 2017 by daniellax3

First off, there's a $10 fee just to enter the park. The main path is a paved path and you have the option of going off that into different dirt trails. However, there are trails that are only for hikers and the paths were not well marked when trying to just explore. The good part was that the views along the paved path were gorgeous. It's definitely a beginners ride as well, didn't encounter anything difficult, except a couple of mild climbs.

Sand Creek Regional Greenway

Much improved

May, 2017 by rolo99

Commerce City and Denver have done a lot of work on this trail. I can put together a 25-30+ mile road bike ride on skinny tires. There's a few fine crushed gravel sections where I unclip, just in case, but overall it's in great shape. There's trailheads and port-a-potties frequently enough. They've even made the area near the refinery look good.

High Line Canal Trail (CO)

poorly marked

April, 2017 by astroman

Entering at the southern end by Chatfield Reservoir, the trail is very rough dirt and gravel. After a couple miles the trail suddenly stops and there is a gap with no directions to connect to the rest of the trail. The trail headed north from hwy 470 is packed gravel and in nice condition with rural scenery. There are lots of road crossings and many areas where the trail is unmarked and leaves you hanging. You can't ride 71 miles straight through as the trail info implies.

Left Hand Greenway

Some cool art

November, 2016 by gretchen0b

I do this trail on a longboard. I've done this trail often and I always add miles to it since it is so short. Most of the Longmont trails are all pretty close to each other so you can do multiple variations that incorporate the Left hand Greenway. Sticking with the Left Hand Greenway you will come across some cool art and pretty scenery. As with all the bike paths in Longmont you'll want to start at the East end on a windy day because you're going to want a tail wind for the return trip back. One of the things I really like about this trail are the giant ants, very cool.

St. Vrain Greenway

Crazy flat

November, 2016 by gretchen0b

I do this trail on a longboard. I have an office in Longmont and I do this trail and all the others often and they're all super flat with the exception of one that is not on TrailLink. The East end of this trail is closed due to the flood starting at Sandstone Ranch up to County Line Rd. From County Line to the end of this trail at Golden Ponds or Airport Rd. it is easy pushing. I rarely go to Golden Ponds because it's to short of a skate so I go up to Airport and beyond. The skate is a really pretty skate that follows the St. Vrain, very easy to follow. The best time to skate this trail is with a good 10 mph wind. The return trip is slightly down hill and with a good tail wind you can carve this trail pretty good.

If you study the map you can turn this skate into a loop by connecting the St. Vrain with the Left Hand Greenway trail. 90% of this loop is on bike path with 10% navigating city streets. When I do the loop it is approximately 11-12 miles.

Little Dry Creek Trail

Just ok

November, 2016 by gretchen0b

I did this trail on a longboard starting at 64th Ave. and Pecos. Not knowing when I started this, from 64th all the way to Powell St. the trail is closed. From 64th to Federal the trail is skateable. Once your at Federal you have to walk through a little construction but once you get through it and navigate through some side streets you'll be good to go to the end of the trail. It does look like most of the construction should be done by summer 2017? Once I was back on the trail I noticed that most of it is slightly up hill which made the return trip nice with minimal pushing. I had an 8-10 mph tail wind all the way back which was great, with no tail wind the ride back to 64th would be pretty slow. The concrete on this path is old but in good shape. That also means the path is not very wide compared to todays standard bike path width. The concrete also has old school expansion joints that were done with a trowel instead of a concrete saw, so it's a little bumpy. If this path had new concrete all the way it would be a great ride and I would give 4 stars. I can't give it 5 stars because once you get to Vance Dr. the path becomes sidewalk skating which totally sucks. Not only that it goes the long way around a big shopping center complex and it can be dangerous. Make life easy, once you get to Vance Dr. head up to 80th Ave. and take 80th all the way to Pomona dr. you'll be happy you did. Once you get through that mess your good to go all the way to the end of the trail. There is one section where you have to walk on a dirt road for about a 1/10 mi. but no big deal. The tail wind is what made this ride super fun. Not sure if I'll ever do it again.
