St. Vrain Greenway

Sandstone Ranch to S. Pratt Pkwy and return

May, 2020 by dobsonguy

This was a very pleasant ride. The surface is smooth, and new. The Greenway was destroyed in Sept. 2013 floods. Construction is continuing west of S. Pratt Pkwy. The traillink map needs updating as the new constructed path is not quite the same as before -- on the other side of the creek in places. Go and enjoy.

Clear Creek Trail (CO)

Sights, Sounds , & Smells

May, 2020 by eddins.mcnealy

My wife and I rode from Golden on 5/16/2020, it was our first time on this trail. We started in downtown Golden and it took us some time to find the trail along hwy 53. The trail is paved and in good condition. The first few miles along Clear Creek we rode by Coors and their recycling facility, some interesting smells. The experience overall was very good, lots people out, some opportunity for higher speeds but lots of parks with people, be careful. N

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Pleasant neighborhood trail experience

May, 2020 by RTC

We rode the southwestern tip of Big Dry Creek Trail on a lovely May day, beginning near Westminster City Park and traveling past Highway 36 to Standley Lake. We greatly enjoyed the experience. Although you are never far from residential homes and a few retail hubs, the trail is nicely tucked into nature and closely follows the creek. There were outstanding views of the ravine, stretches of open space, and the mountains with lots of benches and picnic areas along the way. We saw many types of birds—including pelicans, red-winged blackbirds, swallows, and some type of hawk—as well as prairie dogs. The trail was paved until we approached the lake and then it was hard-packed crushed stone, which our hybrids handled well. It was roughly 10 miles roundtrip, which was easily doable for our 10-year-old daughter; no steep inclines, no street crossings (there were several underpasses to bypass traffic), and only one small stretch of on-road riding for a couple of blocks on a quiet rural road (not a single car even passed us). A pleasant surprise was all the beautiful artwork along the trail; every street underpass had painted murals.

High Line Canal Trail (CO)

Highline Canal from Waterton to Redstone Park

May, 2020 by cari.risby

The trail is not well marked and at mile 8.6 it just ends. There are no trespassing signs through a farm and this is the only way to cut through back to Titan. Then you have to dangerously navigate running along titan and highway 85 for about a mile before seeing the trail again. To get back on your must go into deep gully, cross railroad tracks and then it’s fine. Need an adrenaline rush on 85, go for it otherwise get on a different location if you are planning to go more than 8.6 miles.

High Line Canal Trail (CO)

Best trail in Denver area!

May, 2020 by keely.mcfall

If you’re training for a half, full marathon, or an ultra, this is the best trail to do it! The length of the trail makes it easy to go straight for many miles. There are several confusing spots where it’s unclear where the trail branches off into smaller ones. Overall, the best I’ve found!

Cherry Creek Regional Trail

Great ride for all

March, 2020 by henrysanin

The Cherry Creek trail is well maintained and has rest areas, air stations and restrooms along the route. Riders ranging from novice to expert ride along the trail that goes through suburbs and into downtown. Beautiful riverside trails lined with towering trees and natural wild vegetation.

Ralston Creek Trail

Frustrating yet scenic

November, 2019 by giuseppe_scarpitta

Never again. Although very scenic in some areas the signage along this trail is lacking, especially in important areas when there is a fork in the trail. I found myself going the wrong way several times. The City of Arvada needs to step up and provide direction for riders who don't know this trail. When it's getting dark and becoming cold, the challenge of finding your way back on the this kind of trek does not become fun anymore.

Clear Creek Trail (CO)

Fun family adventure

September, 2019 by laurastark

We had a fun day exploring the Clear Creek Trail in Golden and some of the city's numerous attractions. We began at Parfet Park, where there was ample parking along Jackson Street. The trail begins paved, but becomes crushed stone as you head west out of town. The path can get a bit bumpy here, but we were fine on our hybrid bikes. The pathway closely parallels the river and we saw lots of families tubing down the river and a couple of people with fly fishing gear. There was a great playground right along the trail, too, which my daughter loved. Nearby, we also visited the American Mountaineering Museum and took a tour of the Coors brewery.

Kipling Trail

Good ride

September, 2019 by suzyjonsen

If you do this ride round trip, the elevation gain is over 1,100 feet. Not a bad ride and if you look in the distance the view is nice. However, the trail is parallel to Kipling so you’re riding next to a busy street with a lot of traffic lights. That said, the drivers were extremely nice. We are cyclists that obey all traffic laws and it was great how we could ride in unison, thanks Lakewood!!

Cherry Creek Regional Trail

The Denver section was great.

August, 2019 by Ratbas

I didn't get a chance to explore all of this trail, but I was very impressed with what I saw of if as well as the Denver cycling infrastructure in general (handlebar videos available at youtube.com/ratbas). The idea of being able to ride for miles through a major city without having to cross an intersection is very enjoyable. The trail is well maintained, has good signage and plenty of public are while taking you past many points of interests. There are also countless access points to make it very practical for commuters and tourists.

Longmont-to-Boulder Regional Trail

Peaceful & scenic neighborhood trail

July, 2019 by laurastark

We had a wonderful time on the LoBo Trail, beginning our ride from Boulder's Celestial Seasonings parking lot after a great tour of the tea factory. The trail’s scenery was beautiful: a mixture of shady tree corridors and open fields with long grasses and wildflowers. Quiet neighborhoods buffered the trail just beyond the trees, and we saw many people out enjoying a weekend bike ride or walking their dogs. The trail was largely hard-packed crushed stone, which our hybrid bikes handled easily. There was a short break in the trail between Twin Lakes Road and Lookout Road, but that afforded us the opportunity to access a commercial area where we stopped for lunch.
