Rocky Mountain Greenway Trail

Trail map badly outdated

February, 2024 by kbom

This trail currently extends through the Westminster Hills Open Space and Colorado Hills Open Space almost to Indiana Street.

Big Dry Creek Trail (Westminster)

Great trail for biking

January, 2024 by jennkel5669

Great trail for biking however I wish they would leave the surface alone and stop adding concrete!! Be careful when going into tunnels, these may be flooded and contain debris. You could also take a nasty fall, so please slow down. Lots of wildlife and great for bird watching!

Farmers' High Line Canal Trail

linda

December, 2023 by petunia.1

Ran into construction along the trail at about Washington and 124th so we had to detour past the Eastlake train station and a little south. This is one of my favorite rides and connect 6 trails to make a 16 mile loop.

Bear Creek Trail (Denver)

I went hiking here for the first time and it was awesome. Got a real good workout climbing the mountain.

Rio Grande Trail

Spectacular Fall Ride!

October, 2023 by ltenery

This was a fabulous ride! We took the train from Denver to Glenwood Springs, biked to our overnight accommodations then shuttled to Aspen in the morning. VelociRFTA L or BRT allows bikes (eBikes < 60 lbs allowed) after 7a. 2-3 bikes per bus, first come, first served. Shuttle to Aspen $5 w/bike, seniors free. ~90 min to Aspen. Breakfasted in Aspen, then set out on spectacular fall-colored, 42mi ride. If you only have 30mi in you do Aspen>Carbondale, the last 12mi are not particularly memorable.

Uncompahgre RiverWay Trail

beautiful ride!

September, 2023 by gbmarlin

I started at the Ridgway park and rode the trail to Ridgway State Park. When the trail dead ends into a street, go right and you’ll hook up with the trail again. You can watch me go along this trail on our YouTube channel called Traveling Marlins.

Alpine Tunnel Trail

loved this trail!

September, 2023 by mcmurray.missy

Great hike with a nice easy incline. Fantastic views!!

Colorado Riverfront Trail

concrete (mostly) trail

September, 2023 by bethredeker1

This trail is really really nice. The concrete is wonderful. There is a small section of blacktop but is in the world to be replaced with concrete. The trail can be a little confusing but once you get the hang of it, it is easy to follow. Beautiful views along the entire trail. Most people follow the simple rules to make it nice for everyone to enjoy.

Animas River Trail

Animas River Trail 2023

September, 2023 by b0ssc0

Excellent bike trail. I rode the entire length north to south and back. Beware, the asphalt sections have some serious ruts in them..and the area around W. 9th has a few sketchy folks and their dogs. A great ride!

Sand Creek Regional Greenway

Avoid trail north if I-70

September, 2023 by awalker2010_tl

Would not recommend this trail any further north of I-70/Quebec bridges if you’re a runner. Numerous people doing drugs on the trail. Left over foils. Watch for needles. Not to mention the excessive amount of trash in this area. Pretty sad and disappointing.

US 36 Bikeway

Great Ride

September, 2023 by oja101

This is an excellent trail to use for your bike rides! Easy to navigate, safe away from all traffic & plenty of rolling hills to enjoy.

Rio Grande Trail

Great trail experience

September, 2023 by jhinkle

A unique experience on a scenic trail. We loaded the bikes on the front of the RFTA bus and rode 1 1/2 hour t from Glenwood Springs to Aspen for $3. Biked a gentle decline for 40 miles with great views along the Roaring Fork River. This trail should be in the hall of fame. Buses were running about every 20 minutes, can load bikes after 7am, and no e-bikes. You can get latest on the bus at the Glenwood Springs visitors center.
