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.

Platte River Trail

great but busy

October, 2016 by astroman

There are lots of families and weekend sightseers who don't know bike path ediquite, but otherwise it's a great through path that is well maintained. Most of it is scenic along the river with several areas of industrial views. Shops and rest areas along the way. Connects to many other trails.

Poudre River Trail

Amazing trail.

September, 2016 by binderchristian

This is an easy 21 mile paved and mostly flat trail that goes to/from Greeley to/from Windsor with plenty of stops in between. A portion of this trail is within the city but the majority is out in the country and you are surrounded by beautiful views of mountains, open fields, lakes, trees and farmland and all that you can hear is the wind rustling through the trees and maybe a small critter jumping into the water. I would say the best time to go is in the spring or fall when the air is cool and crisp, or in the early morning hours of the summer.

US 36 Bikeway

the commuters dream

September, 2016 by binderchristian

This is not really a bike trail but more of a urban cyclist commuters corridor. Connecting many of the Colorado foothills communities such as Westminster,Broomfield, Louisville, Superior and Boulder. There is a rest stop at the top of Davidsons Mesa since this is the steepest part of the whole trail. Nice smooth concrete pavement makes this trail a great way to travel between these cities.

Loveland Recreation Trail

Midwest rider

September, 2016 by drdavidgaunt

We rode the entire length of the trail and enjoyed much of it. The Boyd Lake area is especially pleasant. Since the trail is not complete, it seemed to leave us wondering how to connect to the next completed section. Signage needs improvement, especially since the trail is not finished. The section along 57th Street was a nightmare, with no bike lane on a very busy road. The anticipated completion of this section will be a great improvement, whenever that happens.

Dry Creek Greenway

Worth doing

September, 2016 by gretchen0b

I did this trail on a longboard. I am coming from Colorado and was not aware of the extensive trail system in Cheyenne and TrailLink is not up to date on all the trails.If I would have known I would have added Sun Valley onto my skate. I started where Dry Cr. and the Sun Valley trails converge. I ended the skate at Buffalo Ave. and Creighton St. a mile past I-25, approx. 8 miles, and approx. 550 ft. of elevation gain, 16 miles round trip. On the way back I was glad there was a tail wind because I did not break 13 MPH. Granted I was carving almost the whole way back which sheds a lot of speed but if there was no wind it would have been a really slow ride back. Not a lot of trees on this path so mid summer would be really hot. There's also not a lot of curves on this path, lots of long straight section. It wasn't the most exciting trail but I had a lot of fun. I plan on coming back and do this trail again and some of the others in Cheyenne.

Spring Creek Trail (CO)

Super fun

August, 2016 by gretchen0b

I did this trail on a longboard and it is a blast for mellow longboarding. I started this trail at the East Prospect end of the trail and went past the official ending of this trail at the Spring Canyon Park 7.8 mi. The first 9 mi. are a very gentle up hill which is great for the return ride. At the 9 mi. mark the trail heads East towards S. Shields and it is a great downhill ride with just a couple of uphills. I stopped just short of Shields and made my way back to Prospect, a 22 mile round trip. There are a couple of short sections on this trail where you could break 20 mph. I did not go that fast. I stayed under 15 mph with foot braking. I will be back to do this trail again, way fun.

Lake Estes Trail

Very pretty

August, 2016 by gretchen0b

Very pretty trail but also very short. I did this trail on a longboard and most of it is flat. I started this trail going clock wise because if you go counter clockwise it gets really steep going down to the bottom of the dam. The best time to ride this trail is in early spring and after all the kids go back to school because it can get very crowded with tourist's.

Poudre Trail (Fort Collins)

Flat

August, 2016 by gretchen0b

I did this trail on a longboard. I started at N. College and the museum and went up to Bellevue. The trail is very pretty but it is very flat for a longboard, I pushed there and back. The concrete is in good condition with saw cuts for the expansion joints and the asphalt is also in good condition. Nice ride if you are looking to stay under 10 MPH.
