Recent Trail Reviews

Rock Island Trail (CO)

Fantastic from Union to Powers

December, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

Wide concrete trail from Union east to Powers. Several sections were recently reconstructed. There are a few street crossings and an underpass at Circle Dr.

Cherry Creek Regional Trail

Good trail, inconvenient to access

September, 2017 by alysiacaringi

The trail is great in that it's separated from cars, in some sections it's even separated from walkers and runners, and it makes accessing downtown a breeze. However, there is a major disconnect between this trail and all of the bike friendly streets of downtown. Because the trail follows Speer, arguably the most dangerous and busy street in Denver, it's extremely nerve-wracking trying to get off the trail to access anywhere downtown from most exit points.

Denver's done a decent job of making their streets bike-friendly but the major thing the area lacks is connection of those streets to other streets and trails. Turning left is a nightmare and getting on the Cherry Creek trail is nearly impossible without riding on the sidewalk for a few blocks.

High Line Canal Trail (CO)

Be aware of the Santa Fe area of the trail

July, 2017 by jeremy.barton

Approaching Santa Fe is where the trail seems to become really neglected. No crossing assistance whatsoever across Santa Fe is extremely dangerous. Once across Santa Fe heading SW, the trail is extremely rutted and then ends in the middle of nowhere with no signage or any instruction on how to get to the Chatfield section. This section appears to be run/managed by Denver Water but I would highly avoid this area until improvements are made.

Pikes Peak Greenway Trail

Great on two wheels, south end good for trikes

July, 2017 by biomom1954

Road this trail on both my bike and trike. North of the bike shop was uncomfortable on the trike due to the very uneven narrow paved surface. South of the bike shop the trail has been reworked and is wider and smoother. Much better surface for trikes to share the trail.

Willow Creek Greenbelt Trail

south has ridges

May, 2017 by bentmtnrider

Fun stroll to Sweetwater Park with varied terrain, tunnels, traffic noise, & access to C470 trail.

Midland Trail

New Asphalt on Naegele Road

May, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

Update May 2017: New pavement on Naegele Road (US 24/Cimmarron St. Frontage Road) between 21st St. and 25th St.!

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.

Pikes Peak Greenway Trail

Standard urban trail

April, 2017 by astroman

Entering at Woodman Rd, we rode about 5 miles south. Convenient bike shop about .5 miles in. It's a pretty typical urban paved trail through industrial area along a stinky stream.

New Santa Fe Regional Trail

bike handling practice

April, 2017 by astroman

We parked at the Pikes Peak Greenway TH and rode the southern 10 miles out and back. Bathroom and water were still closed for the season here on April 16th, 2017 after a month of 70 degree weather. Gradual uphill in this direction but the rolling hills make it tough to realize the accumulated elevation. The trail runs relatively close to the freeway, but often seems on a distant prairie with frequent nice views of Pikes Peak. Trail surface is deep sand, loose gravel, with rolling hills.

Sinton Trail

Trail Upgrade Complete!

April, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

New concrete has replaced the old asphalt trail between Gossage Park and the I-25 underpass. The trail alignment is basically unchanged so some relatively steep sections remain.

LaForet Trail

Update March 2017

March, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

The concrete trail has been completed along the south side of Middle Creek Parkway west of Voyager Parkway (all the way down the hill to the western terminus of Middle Creek Parkway).

Fun and interesting trail.

Shooks Run Trail

Trail Upgrade between Jackson St. and Fontanero St. is Complete!

March, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

The old cracked and crumbling asphalt through this section has been replaced with new concrete and a gravel shoulder for runners thanks to ballot measure 2D! Awesome!
