Poudre River Trail

Lazy hazy and amazey

July, 2017 by deb.goss

That was fun. And yes it's not an aggressive trail, mostly flat but the length was perfect. Of course I never plan my water right but once I hit the end in Greeley (I started in Windsor) I rode into to town and fueled up on water. I went today 7/8/17, a bit warm but I didn't want to stop and double back because each part of the trail was so interesting, I wanted to see what each curve brought, even the few miles through "town" looking at the houses up against one of the many small lakes was interesting, Kinda want to live there now. Thanks Larimier County and or Weld and Traillink.

Uncompahgre RiverWay Trail

Warm July ride

July, 2017 by laurieaojai

I read about this trail and wanted to check it out on my drive between Durango and Telluride. I am from out of state and not familiar with this area. I started in Ridgeway and headed out to the state park. I asked a gentleman at the visitor center right in town about the trail beyond end of pavement because I had both road and mountain bike with me, and he informed the trail continues beyond end of pavement, so I took mountain bike. Overall it was a warm July afternoon ride, and dry. The scenery is ordinary with not much foliage or greenery The trail at the end of pavement is a fun single track and it is cooler there due to body of water. Being alone I did not go too far and recommend avoid solo travel as the area was quite deserted, even though a state park.

Loveland Recreation Trail

BIKE ROUTE NOT A BIKE TRAIL

June, 2017 by rawmish

This is a bike ROUTE, NOT a bike TRAIL. Over 1/3 of this trail is on road. And not residential roads. These are busy thoroughfare's and I do not recommend for anyone who is not familiar or comfortable riding in traffic with cars, trucks, semi's, construction vehicles, and buses. I started at 57th Street trail head and it's basically random sidewalks intermixed with road with a tunnel that passes underneath highway 34 until you get to the Boyd Lake area of the trail. I ride bike trails to get out of traffic and this is not out of traffic.

Loveland Recreation Trail

Not finished

June, 2017 by gretchen0b

I've done this trail on a double drop longboard. I've done sections of this trail many times and have only done the full loop once. I'm reviewing the full loop and give it four stars because it's not finished. When we started we parked at Boyd Lake which costs $8 to park which is kind of a bummer. We went clockwise around the whole loop and my GPS said we did 20.5 miles. There's a couple of tricky spots to navigate but not a big deal since they are short spots. The first spot is when you get to Wilson Ave. where the trail ends at 8th St. Head West on 8th and continue all the way to the end. 8th St. changes names to Imperial Ridge Dr then Zachary Dr. Once you've reached then end of Zachary walk through a short field and down towards the creek so as not to trespass. Once you've reached Namaqua Rd. the concrete trail begins again and you know are starting the second leg of the trail. You'll take the trail to its end at W 57th St. which is the worst part of the loop. 57th St. is a busy road with little to no shoulder and dangerous to pedestrians. Once you cross the rail road tracks you can access the trailer park and use S. Berry Dr. to make you way to Hwy. 287 (Garfield Ave.) Now the path begins again and you are on your way back to Boyd. This path in either direction offers fun little downhill sections that are great fun on a longboard. Our top speed never exceeded 20mph.

South Canyon Trail

Someday this will be a great trail

June, 2017 by dwright3

There are big plans for this trail - but they have not happened yet. Today this is a one mile stretch of paved trail that does not link with any other trails.

Platte River Trail

Great bird watching!

June, 2017 by dincy

A friend and I rode this trail a couple of weeks ago. Other than a detour between 96th and 104th, which really wasn't too bad, the trail is in good shape. It actually goes through to the north farther than the description listed in the trail guide. It now ends at 136th and Old Brighton Road.

Bear Creek Trail (Denver)

Gorgeous views but not worth the entry fee

May, 2017 by daniellax3

First off, there's a $10 fee just to enter the park. The main path is a paved path and you have the option of going off that into different dirt trails. However, there are trails that are only for hikers and the paths were not well marked when trying to just explore. The good part was that the views along the paved path were gorgeous. It's definitely a beginners ride as well, didn't encounter anything difficult, except a couple of mild climbs.

Galloping Goose Trail (CO)

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

a must ride if you get the chance

May, 2017 by thescoundrels

Started at the no name rest area,rode up 12 or so miles to the start.Did not see any rafters but riding next to the white water was just spectacular.There are rest areas with clean restrooms and picnic tables all along the way.The grade both up and back was gentle,very easy riding.The highway engineering is amazing all by itself.All along the way there is stuff to stop and look at.A destination ride for sure.

Midland Trail

New Asphalt on Naegele Road

May, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

Update May 2017: New pavement on Naegele Road (US 24/Cimmarron St. Frontage Road) between 21st St. and 25th St.!

Sand Creek Regional Greenway

Much improved

May, 2017 by rolo99

Commerce City and Denver have done a lot of work on this trail. I can put together a 25-30+ mile road bike ride on skinny tires. There's a few fine crushed gravel sections where I unclip, just in case, but overall it's in great shape. There's trailheads and port-a-potties frequently enough. They've even made the area near the refinery look good.
