Longmont-to-Boulder Regional Trail

Bridge out

August, 2017 by karen57

FYI: The bridge is out at the start of the trail (Greenway)
There is a visitor center, the bridge is out just past the center.

High Line Canal Trail (CO)

Be aware of the Santa Fe area of the trail

July, 2017 by jeremy.barton

Approaching Santa Fe is where the trail seems to become really neglected. No crossing assistance whatsoever across Santa Fe is extremely dangerous. Once across Santa Fe heading SW, the trail is extremely rutted and then ends in the middle of nowhere with no signage or any instruction on how to get to the Chatfield section. This section appears to be run/managed by Denver Water but I would highly avoid this area until improvements are made.

Animas River Trail

beautiful

July, 2017 by beishbaumer

Started at the south end, parking lot across the river behind Home Depot. It had rained/misty conditions, and did not encounter many people. To label this RailsTrails might be misleading where I started; you expect that at most you encounter a slow grade increase or decrease with R to T, but the first 3 miles included several hills to travel up or down the river bank. Then the trail levels out though I turned around about 7 miles. STILL quite scenic, concrete sections very smooth, and asphalt sectins a bit bumpy.

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

Beautiful ride along the canyon walls and river

July, 2017 by johnrs2117

Plain and simple: It is just beautiful. About 13 or so miles along the Colorado river and among the canyon walls. The path is concrete all the way. You can stop half way up the trail from Glenwood Springs and hike the 1.5 mile to Hanging Lake. This is a trail that shouldn't be missed. It can get a little crowded in sections due to the people going to Hanging Lake, but otherwise not crowded at all.

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

Ride to Carbondale for breakfast

July, 2017 by johnrs2117

We started at 7:30 am at the trail head in Aspen. We rode the 30 or so miles to Carbondale for breakfast at the Village Smithy. Great ride and great place for breakfast. We rode back to Aspen. (We could have extended the downhill ride, about 10 more miles into Glenwood Springs but we didn't.) The trail is beautiful the entire way. You start out following the roaring river and rise a couple of hundred feet above the river and go from the paved path to a packed gravel path. (The gravel runs about 2 or 3 miles, then back on the paved path.) Easy on the bike though. We were on a tandem and had no problems. Once you get to the top above the river, it is down hill all the way into Carbondale. It took us a total of 1 hour 45 minutes to get to the restaurant. On the way back it is slightly an uphill ride. Just enough slope to make it a little challenging. It took us about 2 hours and 30 minutes to ride back to Aspen. It is a beautiful and wonderful ride the entire way. You will see the roaring river, ranches, and mountain vistas. You must ride this trail.

Mineral Belt Trail

Like riding through an outdoor museum

July, 2017 by johnrs2117

We started at the western parking lot and rode clockwise following the mile markers. A steady but slight uphill to the 5 mile marker. A downhill thrill ride all the way down to the parking lot. Beautiful scenery and with lots of information along the way. Almost like riding through an outdoor museum.
Well worth the ride. If you are just passing through Leadville, I would highly recommend taking an hour or so to ride this trail.

Pikes Peak Greenway Trail

Great on two wheels, south end good for trikes

July, 2017 by biomom1954

Road this trail on both my bike and trike. North of the bike shop was uncomfortable on the trike due to the very uneven narrow paved surface. South of the bike shop the trail has been reworked and is wider and smoother. Much better surface for trikes to share the trail.

Little Dry Creek Trail

Little Dry Creek Trail

July, 2017 by john_man_25

It's an OK trail with a lot of surface street crossings that link cement paths behind backyards in the Northwest section. Heading east from 76th and Sheridan the path dips down into a concrete channel that carries the creek. The feel is industrial, it's an old urban / housing projects area. You climb back out of the channel around Lowell. This area has been closed for construction for about 4 years, but is nearing completion. You can get through it when they are not actively working, otherwise you will have to detour on surface streets. I recommend it for family walks, only OK for cycling.

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.
