Medicine Bow Rail Trail

A Wonderful Example of Forest Regrowth and an Awesome Trail

November, 2016 by wilderwomn

Two friends and I rode from the Woods Creek Trailhead to Pelton Creek and back the last weekend of October 2016. The weather was crisp and the trail was deserted - we saw one woman walking her dogs over our 24 miles on the trail. I had not been on the Medicine Bow Rail Trail for many years and was worried that the beetle infestation of a few years back might have caused deforestation around the trail making it an ugly or boring ride. To the contrary, while many trees were killed and some still stand, many have been removed. This has opened up the forest around the trail to regrowth. When I rode a section many years ago near Owen Lake, it was a corridor through thick lodgepole pine - rather bland and uninteresting after a few miles. Now, at least in the section we rode, stands of aspen are growing in and there are views opened up both by fire as well as beetle kill. Nature knows how to rejuvenate. Since the leaves had already fallen this year, I can't wait to return to the trail next fall during the height of aspen leaf season, it should be even more beautiful. We rode a combination of mountain bikes and cyclocross bikes (fitted with non-knobby tires) and the trail surface was well-packed. Even a hybrid or commute bike tire would do well. We stopped for a hot drink and some appetizers at the WyoColo lodge just off the trail, and it was cozy and friendly. This would be a great trail for beginners, families and anyone who is looking for peace and solitude and a great workout.

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.

Medicine Bow Rail Trail

Great gravel trail for all ages

September, 2016 by anniegowyo

This trail is a gravel trail. It's 21 miles offer various forest views, loads of wildflowers and if you're lucky you may see some wildlife. We have seen a variety of riders this summer. Volunteers are helping improve the trail from conditions brought by wildfire near Lake Owen and beetle kill a couple of years ago. The forest is regenerating. Aspen will soon be showing their beautiful fall colors. A fun, enjoyable ride for bikers of all ages.

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.

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.

Poudre Trail (Fort Collins)

awesome trail

July, 2016 by ahazelet

Beautiful ride along the Poudre River, multiple parking locations to jump on the path in convenient locations close to town.

Spring Creek Trail (CO)

Downtown access

August, 2015 by arrie.rossouw

Simply the best way to access downtown FoCo or CSU campus if you live near the trail.

Poudre Trail (Fort Collins)

Best city trail

August, 2015 by arrie.rossouw

The residents of FoCo is so privileged to have such an asset. It is simply one of the best city trails for the whole family. And easy access to some of the best coffee shops and eateries.

A beautiful well paved trail. The morning is the best, the birds chirping and singing away. The river flowing and leaving behind the sounds of nature. Highly recommended for the athletes and commuter. Enjoy SalZ

East Cheyenne Greenway

Greenways Connected 2015

August, 2015 by ajw

Cheyenne has recently expanded their trail network so that now you can ride 11 miles uninterrupted from I-25 near Western Hills Blvd to Holliday Park near downtown. This connects the Dry Creek and East Cheyenne greenways, and adds the new Sun Valley greenway in the south. We parked at Cahill Park off Dell Range Blvd and headed west on the Dry Creek trail all the way to the end at I-25. The trail is concrete with some moderate ups and downs, running between the airport and the back of businesses on Dell Range. After returning to Cahill, we went east on the Dry Creek, on the new Taft Rd connector, on the East Cheyenne greenway, on the new Sun Valley greenway which runs along the railroad, and ends at Logan Ave. There also is a short connector that takes you to Holliday Park. These are all connected now to form the Cheyenne Greenways with signs along the way. They are also concrete with some moderate hills. A nice few hours in Cheyenne. See my pics with sights and tips along the way.
