East Plum Creek Trail

East Plum Creek Trail

April, 2021 by jpdelay

Great bike or walking trail along East Plum Creek with great views of Castle Rock and Pikes Peak. Wildlife abounds having seen deer, beavers, coyotes, hawks and bald eagles. Now connects Crystal Valkey Tanch to the Meadows.

Longmont-to-Boulder Regional Trail

Favorite New Path

April, 2021 by flynnbj

Great scenic trail along streams mostly and very quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended, we parked at the Niwot Loop Trailhead on Hwy 52 and 79th Avenue.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Pleasant outing

April, 2021 by laurastark

Biked about 2 miles of the Big Dry Creek Trail today between Metzer Farm Open Space and the Sheridan Boulevard underpass. It was a fun ride with a lot of swooping curves, gentle hills, and wildlife (saw a rabbit, prairie dogs, and a coyote).


Poudre River Trail

unexpected trail closure

April, 2021 by ilonahelin_tl

The trail is closed about 3 miles from the river bluff entry point. So disappointed, as there was no signage to indicate the closure.

Sheep Draw Trail


January, 2021 by creativespirit1201

Nice and easy biking and walking trail. Recommend for beginners.

High Line Canal Trail (CO)

walked all 142 miles

January, 2021 by rnamama2

Walked the whole trail (in segments) from August to late December 2020. Loved most of it. Spectacular views of the mountains and a great way to explore the burbs around Denver. Disappointed by lack of signage in many places and very annoyed that it ended unceremoniously without documentation.

Firestone Trail

Paved and Easy

December, 2020 by sophia.leora.campbell

This trail was easy to access and walk. Parking is available all around at memorials and in bordering neighborhoods. The only downside is that it follows a major road. You have to listen to the sounds of traffic. There’s not much nature.

Platte River Trail (CO)

Great for wheels

November, 2020 by skill_zombie

I just decided to try this trail today and I’m so glad I did! I started at around 88th and Colorado. I went almost 4 miles (on roller skates) and the ride was amazing. There was one small spot with some twigs and pebble debris but I made it over without too much trouble. I didn’t skate as far as I wanted to, but there was only like 1 steepish slope under a bridge (it has a railing on the left side though so you can still make it if you’re a beginner). I highly recommend this trail; smooth as butter and people are respectful.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Littleton)

Nice trail, Well Maintained

October, 2020 by w1dergrl3

Sweet trail - super colorful in the fall. Not as many walkers, runners but definitely a lot of bikes. Cyclists are respectful and usually announce. Paved walk. No directional signage at trailhead after parking off Union. That could have been a lot more clear.

Lee Lateral Ditch Trail

Fun trail with many unexpected delights!

October, 2020 by laurastark

We visited the western tip of this trail—from Lake Village Park to Eagleview Elementary School—a distance of about 1.5 miles one way. It made for a pleasant October weekend ride with large old cottonwoods and other trees offering shade and hints of fall color. The trail begins with a nice parking area, a large picnic pavilion, porta potty, and exercise stations. At many points as we rode along, the trail split, offering a paralleling finely crushed stone surface for runners. Much of the way, the trail also followed a narrow shallow ditch. You could tell how popular this trail was as many adjacent homeowners had built their own small footbridges across the ditch to reach the trail. A fun surprise for my 10-year-old was a small trailside playground with two climbable life-size horses made of concrete and a large pig sculpture. For my husband, another fun unexpected find was a dirt mountain biking trail that paralleled the main trail for a short distance.

Other highlights included two heritage areas with railroad artifacts and informational signage about the history of the area. The signs also marked the route as part of the Eastlake Heritage Trail. According to the signage, a Union Pacific Railroad spur once ran through the corridor. Built in the early 1900s, the trains ran to Denver carrying passengers, farm products, and business freight.

Towards the end of our journey, we reached Colorado Boulevard; the crosswalk was well-marked. On the other side of the street the houses got closer to the trail, but it was still a lot of fun as the trail winds through a nice neighborhood.

Snake River Recpath

Great Ride

October, 2020 by resifenceinc

We rode from DILLION TO Keystone very few hills and the scenery is tops. The entire area is trail riding heaven.

Toll Gate Creek Trail

Toll Gate Creek Trail Hampden to quincy

September, 2020 by judipowers

I have been walking this trail and others and am so disappointed with the lack of pride people take in this area. Benches littered with cigarette butts , broken glass that can damage a dogs foot pads, and just general lack of upkeep. Not sure who is responsible but this is not what this should look like, we can and should do better....
