Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Pleasant outing

April, 2021 by laurastark

Biked about 2 miles of the Big Dry Creek Trail today between Metzer Farm Open Space and the Sheridan Boulevard underpass. It was a fun ride with a lot of swooping curves, gentle hills, and wildlife (saw a rabbit, prairie dogs, and a coyote).

Poudre River Trail

unexpected trail closure

April, 2021 by ilonahelin_tl

The trail is closed about 3 miles from the river bluff entry point. So disappointed, as there was no signage to indicate the closure.

Sheep Draw Trail

Nice

January, 2021 by creativespirit1201

Nice and easy biking and walking trail. Recommend for beginners.

High Line Canal Trail (CO)

walked all 142 miles

January, 2021 by rnamama2

Walked the whole trail (in segments) from August to late December 2020. Loved most of it. Spectacular views of the mountains and a great way to explore the burbs around Denver. Disappointed by lack of signage in many places and very annoyed that it ended unceremoniously without documentation.

Firestone Trail

Paved and Easy

December, 2020 by sophia.leora.campbell

This trail was easy to access and walk. Parking is available all around at memorials and in bordering neighborhoods. The only downside is that it follows a major road. You have to listen to the sounds of traffic. There’s not much nature.

Homestead Trail (CO)

Train in Poor Condition

December, 2020 by kevinbrad

The condition of this trail is terrible. Tree roots have buckled the pavement. There are large potholes throughout making it very dangerous to ride on. It is clear that the city has never made an investment to repair the damages. Do not use this trail.

Platte River Trail (CO)

Great for wheels

November, 2020 by skill_zombie

I just decided to try this trail today and I’m so glad I did! I started at around 88th and Colorado. I went almost 4 miles (on roller skates) and the ride was amazing. There was one small spot with some twigs and pebble debris but I made it over without too much trouble. I didn’t skate as far as I wanted to, but there was only like 1 steepish slope under a bridge (it has a railing on the left side though so you can still make it if you’re a beginner). I highly recommend this trail; smooth as butter and people are respectful.

Homestead Trail (CO)

Terrible for anything other than walking and even that would be strenuous. HUGE gaps in the pavement ever 10-15 feet

Beautiful and not to crowded

Fountain Creek Regional Trail

This is a beautiful place for a walk,but not for cycling. Bridge ends abruptly in a four-foot drop into a dry creek bed.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Littleton)

Nice trail, Well Maintained

October, 2020 by w1dergrl3

Sweet trail - super colorful in the fall. Not as many walkers, runners but definitely a lot of bikes. Cyclists are respectful and usually announce. Paved walk. No directional signage at trailhead after parking off Union. That could have been a lot more clear.

Midland Bike Trail

Best Mtn Bike Trail in BV

October, 2020 by echooooo

Beautiful trail follows Midland RR grade. Easy grade except where it dips into gulches where RR bridges originally spanned.
