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...

Poudre Trail (Fort Collins)

Easy trail, stunning views

March, 2022 by bikeridesandbreweries

The Poudre Trail’s numbers are straightforward – 10 feet wide and 12 miles long. This is not to be confused with the Poudre River Trail, which is almost 22 miles long and is in Greeley, CO. Fort Collins’ city fathers (and mothers) broke ground on the trail in 1994 and completed it in 2008. There are few bells and whistles to the trail, though it is a bit tricky finding the trailhead. It’s about a ½ mile down a dirt road off a paved cul-de-sac at the end of a road-to-nowhere, about five miles east of downtown. Once the trail is located, it starts off in what looks like a light industrial setting, but instead is an “environmental facility.”
The early stretch is mostly concrete, perhaps not environmentally friendly, but biker friendly to those who are just getting their morning bike legs. Early on, the Poudre does not appear to be a powerful river, presenting itself more like a shallow stream. Soon, the trail approaches downtown Fort Collins, much quieter during the daytime than it is at night. Later, the trail heads around a large pond. It turns out that is the town reservoir, and the reason why the Poudre River flow is so gentle. From the reservoir west, the view is outstanding, much more dramatic than the prairies east of town. And just beyond the edge of the official trail, the road starts its climb toward the Rockies.
A nationally known brewery is right off the bike trail in downtown Ft. Collins.

Longmont-to-Boulder Regional Trail

Do this as the leaves change… HEAVEN !!

November, 2021 by patricia.kayser

This is simply a great trail with lots of scenic variety. Fun to do all at once or in segments.

Loveland Recreation Trail

The Gap is Done

October, 2021 by dvjames48

The trail work on the Northern gap is completed! It was done sometime before October 4th, 2021. Instead of riding on a scary West 57th Street there is a safe concrete multi-use path. My wife and I love this 18 mile loop trail in Loveland even if we do live on Boulder.

Long View Trail

Great Ride,I loved it

September, 2021 by alianna222

I did the Long view trail for the first time and it was a challenge. It has some good sized hills. I did the long loop from Laporte to Loveland over to Boyd lake and back to north Fort Collins. I started from my home town of Laporte and ended north Fort Collins near highway One. 34 miles.

Poudre Trail (Fort Collins)

Great Ride and Lunch

September, 2021 by rxrayinc

We started at the Environment Education Center and rode to Bellvue. Even with a stronger than mild wind the scenery kept my mind off the wind. (Coming back with the wind was great!¿) On the way back we followed signs to down town And found, Tom Kha Thai Asian Bistro. What a delightful restaurant and reasonably priced for lunch. We continued through town across the college campus and found the Spring Canyon Park trail. Spring Canyon was beautiful. We found a blow snake more than half the path width! Back across town to the truck. Overall a 40 mile ride!

St. Vrain Greenway

easy ride

September, 2021 by rxrayinc

Both the main trails in Longmont are flat, concrete and perfectly maintained. There is currently a bike detour to get between the trails but it is hard to see going NW.

Corridor Trail

fun and short

August, 2021 by gregorythow

Just finished it.. our favorite part was south of Inverness Park through the Overland Golf course area.. beautifully maintained by the city with waterfall features, outdoor gym equipment, great places to picnic... we were really really impressed with the southern portion of the trail. On to the next one!

South Link Greenway

It's Functional

May, 2021 by realstelecat

It's in the name: it's a link. It does indeed link. Doesn't go above and beyond, but it gets the job done, linking the Allison Draw Greenway with the Sun Valley/East Cheyenne Greenway. Goes through two intersections and the most forgotten "park" in town; it's not much for scenery.
