Westerly Creek Trail

Wrong Turn and Ended Up On This One

August, 2018 by acewickwire

Sort of a nice ride through green space and parks. Only went a few miles from the north end (Expo Park) to Utah Park. Started on High Line Canal Trail but poorly marked trail and this seemed like the trail to follow. Okay trail if in the locale but not one to go out the way for.

Lake Link Trail

East end of the trail is good for biking

August, 2018 by greg131

The trail is great from McKay lake to Sagar reservoir, then it changes to a road trail. The western end has steep turns and switchbacks over a gravel trail. Very difficult to follow as the trail markings are inconsistent. Sections of the trail are arid and remote. Bring snacks and water. Look for prairie dogs and other wildlife along the trail. Recommend a cruising bike or a mountain bike with wide tires. The large portions of gravel make it unsuitable for a road bike.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Great trail w gravel and paved

August, 2018 by starbucknos

Noticed the only people complaining are runners. There is a nice gravel trail alongside it for much of the time, which I walked and ran for years with my kids in a stroller. We just took our first epic bike ride from Butterfly Pavion to College Hill library, stopping in btw to wade, play in parks, and have tons of fun. Its an awesome trail and not even crowded on a Saturday.

Poudre River Trail

Smooth

August, 2018 by negangardo

Skated from Greeley to Windsor and back. The trail is very smooth and flat and an easy trip. Bring lots of water though, as I didn't find any along the way. Also beware of cattle grates instead of pavement around milemarker 14. Otherwise A+!

Lake Estes Trail

Good Stop

August, 2018 by negangardo

Skated this loop while passing through and really enjoyed it. I went clockwise from the visitor center to take advantage of the steep downhill under the powerlines. Somewhat crowded with pedestrians at times, but the pavement is very nice and so are the views.

Poudre Trail (Fort Collins)

Nice trail

July, 2018 by lesplewa

Paved trail. Mostly exposed to sun with some shade. Runs right along the river with nice views of mountains. If not from the area, there are local bike shops that rent bikes. In addition, there are restrooms and water fountains on the trail. I felt safe and enjoyed the trail.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Great for Biking

July, 2018 by jasonvigil777

The new concrete is great for road bikes, the last section near the reservoir is gravel, but doable to a point. Great ride, not very busy.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Love the updated trail

June, 2018 by joannkv

With the addition of concrete, this trail is bike accessible without the mud or loose gravel that used to make it hard to navigate at times. There's a newly added gravel path beside it that should work for runners. I've seen a lot more use by baby strollers, bikes, skateboarders and walkers. The best part of Big Dry Creek is no cars and no street crossings involved.

Boulder Creek Path

Great commuter trail

May, 2018 by scott107

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

Power Trail

Five trails connect

May, 2018 by gretchen0b

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.

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.
