The Switzerland Trail in the peaks west of Boulder was named for the spectacular mountain scenery along this remote and former railroad route. Although why it had to be named after another country...

Nice paved path from the Parker outskirts to the Cherry Creek Trl
This trail needs serious maintenance work. There is a pile of dirt under every bridge. Handrails are down as well between Galley and Murray. The concrete is broken beyond the point of being called concrete between Shooks Run and the newer trail. This is a commuter trail that no one cares about. It was nice to commute down the Cherry Creek Trail to work in Denver and from Denver to Englewood/Chatfield. I could even skate those trails they were so well taken care of. Hopefully, someone starts to take care of Shooks Run, the Legacy Loop, and the Rock Island trail. It could make the city more appealing to start ups, making the commute to Denver less of a necessity ($97 per day spent outside city limits on gas/food/car wear and tear).
If Colorado Springs took a little more care of and updated its trail system, you could actually commute to work without using a car. Sadly, that is impossible with the state of this system.
I am a fitness skater who loves speed. This trail is worse than every trail but prats of the Highline Canal Trail in Westminster, CO. Moved here last week and was looking for a 5-star trail system like the one in Denver. This one is a full-star unlike the 1/2 star Rock Island. Do not skate here without SUV skates or large wheels, preferably the latter to avoid flats
- Some cool restaurants and an ice cream place along the way
- Covers nicer neighborhoods in the city
- Have to cross major and minor roads every 1/10 - 1/4 mile
- Parks along route need some serious care
- Major chunks of concrete missing
- Dirt under the legacy loop bridge that never gets cleaned up
- Broken concrete in patches
Powerslide Next 110 (big wheeled skate)
Does this city care about the park system? You can get from Denver to Aurora, Chatfield to Golden on some of the nicest sidewalk. Here it feels like the last time anyone paved a trail or removed and power washed the dirt away was 1995. There is 1 nice section though with a new sidewalk between the bridge and Tasty Freeze. Could be such a great skate/run/biking trail. They will need to enhance the trails to compete with the quality of life in the state.
The trail between Mississippi and Alameda has wood retaining walls that are leaning into the trail and are a hazard to all.
Who is responsible for the upkeep and how can I donate to help get this repaired quickly?
My daughters and I competed this today. The girls are ages 5 & 6. It was a tad difficult for my 5 year old, but she did it with lots of encouragement! We started at the Dillon end and road to the Frisco end. If I were to do it again, I would do it the opposite direction. This is so that the kids would be on the lake side when we get to the highways. It was a little hairy, with young riders, when we were on the longer stretches next to the highways.
We came from Vail and parked in Dotsero at the trailhead - follow signs for Glenwood Springs Trailhead where the road dead ends. Took the pedestrian bridge over to the restaurant area of Glenwood for lunch before heading back.
Location: Glenwood Springs, CO
Parking: South Canyon Bridge & Devereux Rd
Trail Condition: S Canyon Bridge segment (western) is wide paved trail with a lot of debris thrown on to it from the adjacent interstate, needs maintenance. The eastern segment has nice wide path and well maintained.
Comments: Not much to say about the S. Canyon Bridge segment (western), it is short and unmaintained. TrailLink map implies that the old bridge can be accessed but is not the case anymore. A metal bar has been placed across the bridge entrance. A faded signs states no jumping from bridge and close by is a memorial site for a young man, did he jump from the bridge? The eastern segment travels behind a number of businesses and hotels, with the river on the other side of the trail. There are lots of shade trees, some benches, and picnic tables. At the western end of this segment of trail there is a sewage treatment plant and you go right past the nasty smelling tank with icky brown sludge being stirred up. On a warm day it is not a place you want to be. The trails at the edge of the interstate.
Location: Glenwood Springs, CO
Parking: Devereux Rd
Trail Condition: Western end of trail is newer and trail condition is excellent, wide and concrete. Towards the east the trail is fine but with some cracking.
Signage: Good directional signs.
Comments: This is a good connector trail from west Glenwood Springs to downtown Glenwood Springs and other trails in that area. There are several underpasses and a new overpass to avoid busy streets into the Glenwood Meadows shopping district. Some minor uphill and downhill. It worthy of a ride.
Location: Glenwood Springs, CO
Trail Condition: Overall trail condition is very good with some portions better/newer than others but no major issues.
Signage: Some directional signs. Plus a number of interpretive signs about the history & geology of the canyon.
Comments: I did this trail a number of years ago and wanted to do again. It still is worth repeated visits. This time was on a Friday and not as much traffic as a weekend but still plenty of users. I measured distance of 16 miles from entrance next to vapor caves to the trailhead at the eastern end of canyon. This includes the portion of road at No Name. Next time I’ll start trail at eastern trailhead in the morning when winds are calm through the canyon, then on return trip the winds can pick-up and push me back to start. There were lots of rafters on the river to watch. Even caught one of them mooning the Amtrak train as it passed through the canyon.
What a great ride! Freshly paved the entire 11.5 miles with extremely interesting history plagues every few hundred yards. The mining history and historic equipment was fascinating! Go clockwise from Ice Palace Park for the best experience!
West to east it is a great downhill delight that makes you feel like you are not in a city.
Very steep climb but so worth it! Amazing views and very fast ride back down the hill!
