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...

Dillon Dam Recpath

Spiritual Experience

June, 2018 by ip042340ip

June 1, 2018. Round trip from Keystone to Frisco Marina Park, 25 miles. Perfectly maintained trail, winds around the Snake River, the lake, with views of water and snow covered high mountain peaks. Friendly riders and walkers. A spiritually restoring experience. Consider the 9000' elevation if you are visiting.

Boulder Creek Path

Great commuter trail

Beautiful trail along the creek. Can get crowded, so watch out for others and don’t be in too big a hurry.

Cherry Creek Regional Trail

Well Designed but Crowded

May, 2018 by razryan98

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.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Ruined Trail

May, 2018 by an_gel2668

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.

Trail enhancements are great

April, 2018 by travisdebell

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.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Concrete ruined the natural feel...

April, 2018 by ginginrini

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.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Big Dry Creek Trail

April, 2018 by alock2win

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.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Littleton)

Great Trail

February, 2018 by docjaakkola_tl

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.

New Santa Fe Regional Trail

Great trail

January, 2018 by philcavinta

My wife and son rode from North gate to Palmer Lake and back. It’s a good track that’s relatively flat as compared to section 16 that my son and I normally ride. Recommend this section for and easy ride.

Lake Estes Trail

New Years Day

January, 2018 by auerbach_j

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".

Wonderland Creek Greenway

Looking forward

December, 2017 by auerbach_j

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.

Goose Creek Greenway

Another great Boulder path

December, 2017 by auerbach_j

This is a very good east/west trail that provides access to many other trails/areas of Boulder. It is one of the relatively newer Boulder paths so is nice and wide and in good shape. As with other Boulder paths, there are some blind spots and other path users to be aware of. There is one road crossing at 47th St. that is usually not too bad. Watch out for crazed Prairie Dogs darting in front of you in the open eastern portion!
