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...

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.
We Parked near South Suburban golf course on the east end of the trail and headed west. Majority of trail was packed dirt with intermittent concrete sections. The trail follows Big Dry Creek the whole way. Wonderful, quiet trail. Only have to cross the road once at Colorado Blvd near South Suburban golf course. The trail goes under the road at Dry Creek Rd, Arapahoe Rd and University Blvd. You pass through a very nice park, Cherry Knolls Park complete with open bathrooms in the winter. We ended at DeKoevend Park near the Goodson Rec Center on the east side of University Blvd. This trail connects to the Highline Vanal Teail here. Loved the trail. Felt like we were in a rural area.
With an inversion at lower elevations, it was pretty nice day to ride this ...around 42 degrees F, 10 mph winds, sunny skies. Note that this area is pretty wind prone anytime of the year which could increase the chill factor significantly.
Trail was clear of snow/ice and was in good riding condition (smooth, well maintained, etc).
Fun loop to do in both directions and extremely scenic. Pretty easy but not totally flat, there are enough little rises to get your speed or heart rate up.
Though it was not too busy on this day, there were still plenty folks wandering all along it. Estes Park is a year round tourist destination after all. Would imagine that during the other seasons, particularly summer, it could be almost unbearable to ride at times due to "crowds".
Did this trail on a pleasant, mid December Friday in the early afternoon. Traffic on the trail was not too bad at that time, but given how nice and convenient this trail is, I would imagine that it is quite heavily used at times. Depending on your mindset, heavy traffic and certainly rude users, could make it less enjoyable. I was impressed about how well it is marked/signed... which is good as there are a lot of junctions. Kind of cool to see the 1997 flood high water mark signs along the way.
Did the western section of this trail only and as an earlier reviewer noted, it is beautiful. It is rare to get such a nice paved (concrete) trail in the open grasslands. During its meandering course, it is relatively far from roads/houses until you get near to the western end. Though overall it climbs from east to west, the path winds and undulates in tune with the landscape making it fun and interesting traveling in both directions.
This path is getting a major face lift with new and redone sections between Foothills Pkwy and 28th St./Palo Pkwy slated to be completed Spring of 2018. Along with the existing sections, these improvements will make this greenway path one of the best/most convenient in the Boulder system.
