Piney Creek Trail

Fun trail - Lots of Interesting views and resting spots

November, 2018 by marykaygumbel

I had the opportunity to take this trail from mid-section to end at Cherry Creek State Park. I enjoyed it so much. The trail takes you through parks and follows streams and creeks. You get a diverse view of Colorado landscape including breathtaking views of the mountains on a clear day.

Coal Creek Regional Trail

Lafayette to Superior

November, 2018 by greg131

This is my second review for this trail. The starting point is S. Public road in Lafayette. The trail parallels the river and is quite nice. It goes by the park in Lafayette, then up toward 42. There is a decent climb up to the Aquarius trail head and a spectacular view. From then on, you are heading down hill with some lessor hills along the way. The trail goes by the back of the Dillon road tech center. Then you will go by the Rock Creek country club. There are signs saying to watch out for golf balls. At Superior, you have the opportunity to link with the Coulton trail. The trail does a button hook by the town hall. This is an out and back trail for the most part with nice scenery and wildlife. Note that there will be construction from Nov 19, 2018. The Coal Creek Regional Trail will be closed between McCaslin Boulevard and the US 36 Bikeway on Monday, November 19th. This closure will be ¿in place for approximately 6 months while improvements are made to the Coal Creek corridor. A signed detour will be available to guide bicyclists and pedestrians from the US 36 Bikeway through Downtown Superior to McCaslin Boulevard.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Great trail

November, 2018 by auerbach_j

Did this trail in 2 sections. First, starting at Hwy 36, I went east all the way to I-25 and back (~14 miles). This section of the trail is wonderful. The new, wide smooth concrete path weaves and rolls following the creek though a surprisingly wide open and pretty green belt. There are wetland and prairie areas where it is possible to see various bird and wildlife. You feel like you are in the middle of a wildlife area for the most part. 5 stars.

From Hwy 36 to the west, the trail is not nearly as good quality as the other direction. To me, it was more convoluted and confusing as it goes close by office buildings, apartments/homes, stores, schools, etc. There are some new concrete sections to go with older areas and the pea gravel section on the climb to Standley Lake. Though there are pretty areas and some wildlife, for the most part, it feels like you are in the middle of suburbia. 3 stars.

Though not overly busy, I encountered other riders, runners, stroller pushers, dog walkers, etc. All seemed to be enjoying themselves!

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

Spectacular “pedal trip”

October, 2018 by daireemt

My wife and I rode this in late September. Gorgeous weather and scenery. Trail has 2 or 3 brief (few 100 yards) steep sections, but is generally a very gentle uphill path. Can be understandably noisy with I-70 noise, but is still a wonderful biking experience. We rode from Glenwood to Bair Ranch exit and back to Glenwood. Awesome in spite of our mutual head colds!!

Rio Grande Trail

Wonderful bike experience

October, 2018 by daireemt

My wife and I rode late September. Beautiful day and scenery. We went from Glenwood to Carbondale and in spite of our mutual head colds, found the trail to be an easy enough ride. Winds did pick up in the afternoon, but not enough to be a detriment

Mineral Belt Trail

Fun family ride

September, 2018 by laurastark

We loved this trail! My family, which includes an 8-year-old child, rode the entire loop in a clockwise direction from Ice Palace Park at the north end of the city. Traveling this direction allowed us to kick off our ride with lots of historical goodies; many mining relics lie along the northeastern side of the loop; historical signage tells you the story of the mining industry here. Shortly after leaving the park, you'll need to cross Highway 24, but as Leadville is a relatively quiet town, this was not difficult; there is also a brief on-road section (about 200 yards) along 12th Street, but it's a very quiet road, so even novice riders should feel comfortable. As you continue past mile markers 2 and 3, the trail is absolutely beautiful and lined with pine trees. You'll see a glimpse of paralleling railroad tracks here and, if your timing is right, a scenic excursion train as well. The depot for the Leadville, Colorado & Southern Railroad is right in town, if you want to add a sight-seeing tour to your trip. Towards the middle of the trail, you'll see more aspens and, in mid-September, they were gorgeously golden. One of our favorite parts of the trail was the awesome downhill ride with fun twists and turns between mile markers 8 and 10 on the southwestern side of the loop. As you approach the end of the trail, at mile marker 11, the trail becomes more residential and you'll see Leadville's downtown. NOTE: The one downside to the trail (and the only reason I didn't give it 5 out of 5 stars) is that there are almost no amenities; we recommended bringing lots of water with you and beginning/ending your journey in Ice Palace Park, where there are clean restrooms and a drinking fountain on the side of the building.

Rio Grande Trail

Spend the night next to the trail

September, 2018 by victoria.g.alexander

I biked this trail when I was pregnant. Now I want to bike
it both ways in 2 days with my child in a bike trailer. Do you guys know of any Airbnb’s or some type of lodging right off the bike trail with a restaurant within walking distance? I do not want to travel on roads with my child. Thanks!!

Arkansas River Trail (Pueblo)

The Arkansas River section goes 3 miles beyond what TrailLink shows, and the Fort Creek section adds another 5 miles, all excellent concrete surface. See https://www.pueblo.us/314/Pueblo-River-Trail-System for a nice PDF map.

Cherry Creek Regional Trail

Riding our Recumbent Trikes along the Cherry Creek Trail

September, 2018 by bjandjoondo

We rode the section from the McCabe Meadows Trail Head to the Cherry Creek Reservoir around 27 miles round trip. Although it's mostly only 8 ft. wide, the trail is in very good shape and has lot's of wooded, prairie and urban sections. It's a mellow ride with very few big inclines! We really appreciated that there were several trail heads with facilities (restrooms, picnic table, etc.). We plan to ride the next section north into Down Town Denver soon, we really enjoyed this trail!

Coal Creek Regional Trail

Nice trail

August, 2018 by greg131

I started on S Public road in Lafayette. The trail is well marked and a mixture of gravel, small sections of concrete. There were underpasses to avoid major roads. The countryside was pretty, starting out very lush by the creek, then turning more arid from Lafayette to Eire. There are sections of the trail that were washed out, so while biking, care is needed to navigate those sections. There is a good deal of wild life in and around the trail. Watch out for several prairie dog holes right in the middle of the trail. Bring water and some snacks. Overall, I would recommend the trail.
