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.

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!

Elmer's Two Mile Creek Greenway

Good connector

December, 2017 by auerbach_j

This is a good little north/south connector trail. 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 Glenwood Drive that is not particularly well marked and can be a little sketchy at certain times due to car traffic.

Boulder Creek Path

Classic

December, 2017 by auerbach_j

The classic Boulder multiuse path. It is a very scenic cruise for its entire length. The path is usually always in great shape (unless recent flooding, blow down, or construction) and there are no street crossings (all are underpasses). Going west to east (down creek) you can get your speed up in areas but be cautious as there are some blind corners. More importantly, there are a lot of other trail users, so best to take it easy. Note that there are newly redone sections in the western part of town that help segregate walkers from wheeled traffic by having specific, marked "lanes" for each. Still, as always, pays to be alert and courteous.

Bear Creek Path

great path

December, 2017 by auerbach_j

This is a great little section of trail and is quite pretty as it follows along Bear Creek. The path is usually always in great shape and there are no street crossings (all are underpasses). Going west to east (down creek) can be a fun, quick ride! There are some sharp and blind corners that warrant some caution/awareness. Like other Boulder paths, the only downside is occasional encounters with other "traffic"... bikers, hikers, moms pushing baby carriages, roller bladers, dogs off leash, etc. Best to be on the alert and courteous.

Rock Island Trail (CO)

Fantastic from Union to Powers

December, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

Wide concrete trail from Union east to Powers. Several sections were recently reconstructed. There are a few street crossings and an underpass at Circle Dr.

Bear Creek Trail (Denver)

Inline Skating Review

November, 2017 by wmloving

Starting at River Point, near Regal Cinemas Stadium and 85/285 intersection, the first 1/2 mile or so along the golf course is 7-8' wide smooth concrete, with 4 wood plank bridges crossing the creek. The next 1/4+ mile section is narrower, twists and turns a bit, and is combination of somewhat uneven asphalt and older concrete, a section of which is pitted on one side from winter weather. I would recommend skipping over this section if you are an inexperienced skater; experienced skaters should be fine. From S Lowell Street on the trail is newly paved, smooth and wider (9-10') and makes for wonderful, fast skating with many places to stop for a break. If you want to skip the first section, consider starting at Bear Creek Park. I didn't travel to the end but will update my review if the western parts have any issues for skaters.

Columbine Trail

In dire need if resurfacing

October, 2017 by rbirell

The bumps and cracks in this trail make it an unpleasant (and sometimes painful) ride. At least on a road bike. Also, a couple of the trail/road crossings are somewhat dangerous. Perhaps this is why so many cyclists ride on the road instead of the trail.
