Bear Creek Trail (Denver)

highly recommend

August, 2018 by uschiny

Fun and very scenic trail. Start in Denver and make your way to Morrison. You get the Roi it if the way and it will be a joyful ride back. Serene with wonderful views and not too crowded. Loved it

Rio Grande Trail

Rio Grande Trail

August, 2018 by tdbirch

After reviewing the trail map and posted comments I wisely rode the RFTA from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and biked the 42 miles back to Glenwood Springs. Views along the trail peak near Aspen but this flatlander enjoyed all the scenic vistas. Aspen is 2200 feet above Glenwood Springs which is why I chose to ride down canyon. Living near sea level and mainly riding flat trails I found this trail relatively easy and had no breathing or altitude issues. Nice to scratch this trail off my "todo" list, you will enjoy it surely.

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.

Colorado Riverfront Trail

Love this trail. I cycle this trail regularly; at least 3-4 times per week.

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.

Sinton Trail

Saturday morning walk

August, 2018 by norma.ac.hill

Great trail. I walk my German Sheppard on this trail. You can see all kinds of wild life. Trail is through Housing areas and runs north and south. There are a lot of bicyclists on the trails.

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.

Snake River Recpath

Not eBike Friendly Community

July, 2018 by acewickwire

We rode our eBikes on this trail only to learn afterwards that eBikes aren’t welcome in this community. This being contrary to the bike friendly community signs posted along the roads and trails. (Colorado passed a law last year defining the classes of eBikes and our bikes fall into the category of Class I bicycles.) Unsure why this community doesn’t want eBikes on their trails. We were passed by multiple road bikers, without warning, traveling much faster than us. Despite the unwelcome attitude toward our bikes we did enjoy our ride, not much choice than to finish up once it we had gone so far. Ended up being a loop around Dillon Reservoir, all bike path except for small section of downhill road on Swan Mountain. Stopped for some lemon-aid from some enterprising little girls with a trail side lemon-aid stand.
