Bridge out

FYI: The bridge is out at the start of the trail (Greenway)
There is a visitor center, the bridge is out just past the center.

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.

Little Dry Creek Trail

Little Dry Creek Trail

July, 2017 by john_man_25

It's an OK trail with a lot of surface street crossings that link cement paths behind backyards in the Northwest section. Heading east from 76th and Sheridan the path dips down into a concrete channel that carries the creek. The feel is industrial, it's an old urban / housing projects area. You climb back out of the channel around Lowell. This area has been closed for construction for about 4 years, but is nearing completion. You can get through it when they are not actively working, otherwise you will have to detour on surface streets. I recommend it for family walks, only OK for cycling.

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.

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.
