Rode the trail in Jul 2021. Part of it was closed due to construction. My biggest issue was that the road connections were not marked and I got lost a few times. Beautiful pavement along a small creek. It was a bit unusual with the large number of campers, and I kind of felt bad invading their space. I noticed a better bike trail along the Garden of the Gods park. I will try that next.
I've ridden on 3 sections of this trail. The first is the part that runs through the south part of Cherry Creek Reservoir. To complete a loop of the park you ride on a road and then the Parker Rd Trail. It's a very nice ride with enjoyable views and just a few climbs. The second connects from the High Line Canal Trail at the end of the Cherry Creek Golf Course. This section is well signed and could be confusing if it weren't. You take an underpass to cross Havana then along Kennedy Golf Course. There is a climb out of the golf course then a short descent and under I-225 then a climb either way to go around the dam road. After going around the dam road there is a soft trail along the water's edge (not sure if this is considered part of the CCT). The 3rd is the section going south out of the park down to Parker. Just out of the park you ride the sidewalk along Jordan Rd until just before Arapahoe Rd. Here there are two paths to the underpass. One is very steep and the second not as much but still a bit of a climb (coming back). Again, the trail is very well marked with spots for breaks and trail maps along the way. I went as far as Cottonwood before heading back for a 25 mile ride.
Beautiful scenery and easy hike! Moderate, 25-TD incline to begin, then very flat.
After only one 25-yard moderate incline, enjoy a relatively flat, crushed-granite trail along the Arkansas River. The Royal Gorge Route train tracks run along the Arkansas River below the trail. Very scenic. Very quiet. Family friendly. Two miles in/Two miles out. Three cool tunnels, also! Might see white-water rafters or the Royal Gorge train which runs 3x/day through the gorge. Highly recommend!
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.
The condition of this trail is terrible. Tree roots have buckled the pavement. There are large potholes throughout making it very dangerous to ride on. It is clear that the city has never made an investment to repair the damages. Do not use this trail.
Terrible for anything other than walking and even that would be strenuous. HUGE gaps in the pavement ever 10-15 feet
Beautiful and not to crowded
This is a beautiful place for a walk,but not for cycling. Bridge ends abruptly in a four-foot drop into a dry creek bed.
The city seems to love cement trails, i guess they have lots of money. I would prefer a nice gravel trail myself. The cranks and grinding to level the cement has improved the surface a lot.
My husband and I biked this trail today. We liked it. Did not see any vagrants or encampments.
Amazing trail I highly suggest. First tunnel closed follow the path created to go over the tunnel. Carry bike takes 10 minutes over mountain over few rocks and stream. This is worth it views are amazing. Note when starting trail it’s 1000 feet biking up the trail before you desend on other side totally worth. Take breaks. Tunnels are a little scary it’s not lit so bring mountain bikes flash lights.
