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)

Good easy Mt bike trail

May, 2017 by youker

The bike shop in Telluride runs guided trips and shuttle on this trail.

Willow Creek Greenbelt Trail

south has ridges

May, 2017 by bentmtnrider

Fun stroll to Sweetwater Park with varied terrain, tunnels, traffic noise, & access to C470 trail.

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.

High Line Canal Trail (CO)

poorly marked

April, 2017 by astroman

Entering at the southern end by Chatfield Reservoir, the trail is very rough dirt and gravel. After a couple miles the trail suddenly stops and there is a gap with no directions to connect to the rest of the trail. The trail headed north from hwy 470 is packed gravel and in nice condition with rural scenery. There are lots of road crossings and many areas where the trail is unmarked and leaves you hanging. You can't ride 71 miles straight through as the trail info implies.

Pikes Peak Greenway Trail

Standard urban trail

April, 2017 by astroman

Entering at Woodman Rd, we rode about 5 miles south. Convenient bike shop about .5 miles in. It's a pretty typical urban paved trail through industrial area along a stinky stream.

New Santa Fe Regional Trail

bike handling practice

April, 2017 by astroman

We parked at the Pikes Peak Greenway TH and rode the southern 10 miles out and back. Bathroom and water were still closed for the season here on April 16th, 2017 after a month of 70 degree weather. Gradual uphill in this direction but the rolling hills make it tough to realize the accumulated elevation. The trail runs relatively close to the freeway, but often seems on a distant prairie with frequent nice views of Pikes Peak. Trail surface is deep sand, loose gravel, with rolling hills.

Colorado Riverfront Trail

Whistle Stop

April, 2017 by teriwilliams53

Looking forward to the new rest area, peach groves, shaded benches, not to mention a great view. Located near the new RV campgrounds. A nice ride or hike from Junction to Palisade.

Sinton Trail

Trail Upgrade Complete!

April, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

New concrete has replaced the old asphalt trail between Gossage Park and the I-25 underpass. The trail alignment is basically unchanged so some relatively steep sections remain.
