Rocky Mountain Greenway Trail

Trail map badly outdated

February, 2024 by kbom

This trail currently extends through the Westminster Hills Open Space and Colorado Hills Open Space almost to Indiana Street.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Great trail for biking

January, 2024 by jennkel5669

Great trail for biking however I wish they would leave the surface alone and stop adding concrete!! Be careful when going into tunnels, these may be flooded and contain debris. You could also take a nasty fall, so please slow down. Lots of wildlife and great for bird watching!

Ran into construction along the trail at about Washington and 124th so we had to detour past the Eastlake train station and a little south. This is one of my favorite rides and connect 6 trails to make a 16 mile loop.

The terrain it’s in great conditions. Nice up and down hills.

Switzerland Trail

Not a trail for gravel bikes. Rugged and rutty from the Sugarloaf Rd. Trailhead. Mountain bikes can handle it but double track with plenty of ATV traffic.

Would recommend respirator unless you like carbon monoxide. Very wide surface and less dangerous than the road. Lots of parallel traffic. Air quality alert.

Poudre Trail (Fort Collins)

Easy trail, stunning views

March, 2022 by bikeridesandbreweries

The Poudre Trail’s numbers are straightforward – 10 feet wide and 12 miles long. This is not to be confused with the Poudre River Trail, which is almost 22 miles long and is in Greeley, CO. Fort Collins’ city fathers (and mothers) broke ground on the trail in 1994 and completed it in 2008. There are few bells and whistles to the trail, though it is a bit tricky finding the trailhead. It’s about a ½ mile down a dirt road off a paved cul-de-sac at the end of a road-to-nowhere, about five miles east of downtown. Once the trail is located, it starts off in what looks like a light industrial setting, but instead is an “environmental facility.”
The early stretch is mostly concrete, perhaps not environmentally friendly, but biker friendly to those who are just getting their morning bike legs. Early on, the Poudre does not appear to be a powerful river, presenting itself more like a shallow stream. Soon, the trail approaches downtown Fort Collins, much quieter during the daytime than it is at night. Later, the trail heads around a large pond. It turns out that is the town reservoir, and the reason why the Poudre River flow is so gentle. From the reservoir west, the view is outstanding, much more dramatic than the prairies east of town. And just beyond the edge of the official trail, the road starts its climb toward the Rockies.
A nationally known brewery is right off the bike trail in downtown Ft. Collins.
