The Switzerland Trail in the peaks west of Boulder was named for the spectacular mountain scenery along this remote and former railroad route. Although why it had to be named after another country...

Love this trail. It's busy but plenty room for biking. Many outlets to the water and hiking. Multiple wide bridges with beautiful views. I barely noticed the hwy too. Can't wait for them to complete this project!
Many outlets to the water, and hiking. Wide bridges with beautiful views. Lots of people though, but plenty room for biking.
The new concrete is great for road bikes, the last section near the reservoir is gravel, but doable to a point. Great ride, not very busy.
Best view of Denver. The trail is wonderful. Great ride.
With the addition of concrete, this trail is bike accessible without the mud or loose gravel that used to make it hard to navigate at times. There's a newly added gravel path beside it that should work for runners. I've seen a lot more use by baby strollers, bikes, skateboarders and walkers. The best part of Big Dry Creek is no cars and no street crossings involved.
Beautiful trail along the creek. Can get crowded, so watch out for others and don’t be in too big a hurry.
We did this trail on longboard skateboards and it was fun. We connected five trails for a total of 23 miles out and back. The whole trail system has a lot of up and down which is great on a longboard. There are several sections where you can exceed 20 MPH. We started at the West end parking lot of Edora and on the Spring Cr. Trail skated over to the Power trail head. The Power trail has one break in it and you have to travel on paved road for a short ways, the pavement is in great condition. The trail connects with the Fossil Cr. trail which is very scenic and pretty. The Fossil Cr. trail connects to the new Front Range trail that connects Ft. Collins to Loveland. From the Front Range trail you will travel to the Loveland Recreation Trail. Once you connect with the Loveland trail you can go East or West. If you go East you will encounter Boyd Lake and I whole bunch of extra really cool miles, very cool trail. If you travel West you will end up at the Walmart on Hwy 287 which is where we stopped and skated back to Edora. I can't stress enough how awesome the trail is for an intermediate (Blue) longboarder.
Trail has bikers, walkers and joggers with heavy usage. It's relatively flat and any novice can do it. However be warned, there are numerous bikers who ride at speeds over 20mph (posted limit of 15) and don't care to slowdown for congestion or warn people being overtaken. While every ride is enjoyable, this one was more stressful than any I've been on.
This use to be one of the best running trails until the paved it with hard concrete. The sides are unusable to runners as they are filled with rocks, puddles and leftover concrete. Not to mention I have never seen a stroller/wheelchair since they paved it. Seems like a shame they traded the majority of use for a demographic that doesn't even use it.
Great to see the trail is being paved along with the addition of a 4 feet gravel path. Love seeing the city enhancing the trail to accommodate those who need it paved (wheel chairs, strollers, bikes, etc). and those that also want a gravel path.
They put in concrete in the area around 128th and Huron, Zuni. Ruined the nice, peaceful, natural feel. Still blocked off, so can't tell if they at least left a natural path to walk on for dogs and people with knee problems.
Used to be a great trail for runners but this spring they 'improved' it with concrete. So disappointed! Why would they would they go out of their way to ruin such a beautiful area? The Joni Mitchell song comes to mind, "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot".
Just because they had the money to do it, doesn't mean they should. Disgusted.
