Sand Creek Trail

New Section Open from the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail

February, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

A new section of this trail has been completed and is open from the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail (adjacent to El Pomar Sports Complex) northeast to Hancock Expressway. This is a brand-new, all-concrete section of trail up to Hancock Expressway.

There is still a short missing section of trail north of Hancock, but you can navigate around the missing section of trail using Astrozon Boulevard (located 850 feet to the southeast along Hancock). There are striped bike lanes on Astrozon between Hancock and Academy. You can jump back on the trail via the sidewalks along Academy Boulevard between the Astrozon/Academy intersection and the Sand Creek bridge just to the north. The trail continues along Sand Creek up to Airport Road.

Left Hand Greenway

Some cool art

November, 2016 by gretchen0b

I do this trail on a longboard. I've done this trail often and I always add miles to it since it is so short. Most of the Longmont trails are all pretty close to each other so you can do multiple variations that incorporate the Left hand Greenway. Sticking with the Left Hand Greenway you will come across some cool art and pretty scenery. As with all the bike paths in Longmont you'll want to start at the East end on a windy day because you're going to want a tail wind for the return trip back. One of the things I really like about this trail are the giant ants, very cool.

Rio Grande Trail

I think you should change the name

November, 2016 by loftusteel

I think this trail should be called the Roaring Fork Trail. The Rio Grande River is is about 100 miles away. It's a beautiful ride, albeit gets pretty busy down near Glenwood.

St. Vrain Greenway

Crazy flat

November, 2016 by gretchen0b

I do this trail on a longboard. I have an office in Longmont and I do this trail and all the others often and they're all super flat with the exception of one that is not on TrailLink. The East end of this trail is closed due to the flood starting at Sandstone Ranch up to County Line Rd. From County Line to the end of this trail at Golden Ponds or Airport Rd. it is easy pushing. I rarely go to Golden Ponds because it's to short of a skate so I go up to Airport and beyond. The skate is a really pretty skate that follows the St. Vrain, very easy to follow. The best time to skate this trail is with a good 10 mph wind. The return trip is slightly down hill and with a good tail wind you can carve this trail pretty good.

If you study the map you can turn this skate into a loop by connecting the St. Vrain with the Left Hand Greenway trail. 90% of this loop is on bike path with 10% navigating city streets. When I do the loop it is approximately 11-12 miles.

Little Dry Creek Trail

Just ok

November, 2016 by gretchen0b

I did this trail on a longboard starting at 64th Ave. and Pecos. Not knowing when I started this, from 64th all the way to Powell St. the trail is closed. From 64th to Federal the trail is skateable. Once your at Federal you have to walk through a little construction but once you get through it and navigate through some side streets you'll be good to go to the end of the trail. It does look like most of the construction should be done by summer 2017? Once I was back on the trail I noticed that most of it is slightly up hill which made the return trip nice with minimal pushing. I had an 8-10 mph tail wind all the way back which was great, with no tail wind the ride back to 64th would be pretty slow. The concrete on this path is old but in good shape. That also means the path is not very wide compared to todays standard bike path width. The concrete also has old school expansion joints that were done with a trowel instead of a concrete saw, so it's a little bumpy. If this path had new concrete all the way it would be a great ride and I would give 4 stars. I can't give it 5 stars because once you get to Vance Dr. the path becomes sidewalk skating which totally sucks. Not only that it goes the long way around a big shopping center complex and it can be dangerous. Make life easy, once you get to Vance Dr. head up to 80th Ave. and take 80th all the way to Pomona dr. you'll be happy you did. Once you get through that mess your good to go all the way to the end of the trail. There is one section where you have to walk on a dirt road for about a 1/10 mi. but no big deal. The tail wind is what made this ride super fun. Not sure if I'll ever do it again.

Clear Creek Trail (CO)

That was fun!

October, 2016 by deb.goss

I was wondering if I was gonna make it the whole way and I did. I started at 88th & Colorado in Thornton and made it all the way to Golden. The gradual incline is awesome, I'm sure I will feel it tomorrow. Wasn't thrilled by the "wall" when I got to Golden, that was a tough climb for a rider like me, but I made it.

Didn't hit any construction as mentioned in other reviews, the only un-fun part was the Kipling crossover, Safety First I know, but I really wanted to jump across the 4 lanes in order to save time, but really it wasn't that big of a deal to double back to the trail on the other side of the street.

If I had to do it again I would most likely start in Wheatridge, the trail was way prettier at this point heading West. I wasn't too fond of the I-25 underpass (totally Dateline murder material!) and the other underpasses but I did want the extra miles which is why I started in Thornton.

Thank you!
