Poudre Trail (Fort Collins)

Excellent “urban” trail

December, 2017 by auerbach_j

Though this trail is in the city of Fort Collins, it is hard to call it an “urban” trail as most of it twists and turns pleasantly through the pretty woodlands and open grasslands along the Poudre River. There are many parks and nature areas along the way. The sections that are in the city proper are still very nice and do not give the ugly industrial scenes or heavily residential views other urban trails usually end up providing. Except for a couple brief sections, it is not very close to roads. There are only 2 road crossings that have to be made. Trail itself was in excellent condition with some newly reopened/repaired sections. Only place where there was construction was at the far western end in Bellevue - a couple hundred yards from the end of the trail anyway.

Rock Island Trail (CO)

Fantastic from Union to Powers

December, 2017 by 8 wheel transit

Wide concrete trail from Union east to Powers. Several sections were recently reconstructed. There are a few street crossings and an underpass at Circle Dr.

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

Glenwood Canyon and Colorado River Up Close

November, 2017 by mbcallawa

I drove I-70 west to Glenwood Springs in order to bicycle the Rio Grande Rail Trail (from Glenwood Springs to Aspen, a former candidate for the Rail Trail Hall of Fame). I was disappointed to be driving through such a spectacular canyon at high speed, not able to enjoy the canyon and river views because all my attention was riveted on the Interstate traffic. At Glenwood Springs, I asked at a bicycle shop where the start of the Rio Grande Trail was. The bike shop guy said I should definitely check out the Glenwood Canyon Trail, too, which I did the next day. Glad I did! There is no better way to enjoy the river and the canyon scenery. I relished seeing what I had missed in my car. The Colorado was in June flood, and one section of the trail had several inches of water on it - that's how up close and personal you get to the massive rapids. There is one brief section on regular roads with some short hills, but they have little traffic. The rest of the paved trail is right next to the river with a gentle grade east, up river. You can see and hear the railroad trains on the other side of the river, and you are adjacent to and below I-70 on the north bank. This is not a wilderness experience, but the architecture of the road and trail on one side, and the RR and tunnels on the other are interesting in their own right. Towering over it all are the massive red canyon walls. Overall it was a sublime experience; an ideal cycling day ride (28 miles out and back), car free and carefree, with spectacular canyon views and roaring rapids.

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

look beyond the interstate

November, 2017 by auerbach_j

I pretty much concur with the other reviewers comments but I have to knock off a star for the proximity to the busy, noisy, ugly interstate. If there was no super highway it would be a 6 star ride! But to be honest, if there was no interstate there would be no path. If you can keep your focus toward the nicer natural side of things, it is an incredibly unique and scenic place and fun, stress free riding. 

¿This is not a flat, riverside trail but it is not that difficult. As to be expected, it climbs going up river with the western half (up to Hanging Lake) having more climbing (a few hundred feet total). The eastern half (east of Hanging Lake) is mostly flat¿ but is a little more exposed to the winds, and the winds tend to blow pretty good out of the west through the canyon. So even though you may be going downriver/slightly downhill in the eastern half, it can be some work if the wind picks up. 

¿At certain times of the year (fall/winter), sections of the river are de-watered (dam is closed).... it looks kind of weird and there is no whitewater symphony to drown out the highway cacophony.¿ Guess that makes up for other times when there is an abundance of water and it can be over the path! ;-)

Being a relatively narrow and tall canyon means not a lot of sunlight gets in at certain times at certain places. On hot summer days this is great; on cooler shoulder season days, be prepared for some chilly spots.

Colorado Riverfront Trail

Nice and pleasant

November, 2017 by auerbach_j

A nice and pleasant, flat ride especially if you keep your focus toward the river and not the usual urbanization or industrial influences or highway hijinks in the opposite view direction. Brief sections have less intrusive stuff and more natural beauty than others. Only climb of note is the short easy one to Eagle Rim Park where you can take a lap and do some tricks in the nice bike park there. There is a very good overlook of the entire Grand Junction valley there too.

There is some great public art, "graffiti-like", along the way too. 

This area of Colorado can be exceptionally hot in the summer. But that means it can be really pleasant in the cooler months and very ride-able on nice winter days. Given the abundance of vegetation along the river course (lots of big Cottonwood trees), it would be spectacular in fall when the leaves are changing. Spring would nice too with it all greened out and likely lots of birds.

Bear Creek Trail (Denver)

Inline Skating Review

November, 2017 by wmloving

Starting at River Point, near Regal Cinemas Stadium and 85/285 intersection, the first 1/2 mile or so along the golf course is 7-8' wide smooth concrete, with 4 wood plank bridges crossing the creek. The next 1/4+ mile section is narrower, twists and turns a bit, and is combination of somewhat uneven asphalt and older concrete, a section of which is pitted on one side from winter weather. I would recommend skipping over this section if you are an inexperienced skater; experienced skaters should be fine. From S Lowell Street on the trail is newly paved, smooth and wider (9-10') and makes for wonderful, fast skating with many places to stop for a break. If you want to skip the first section, consider starting at Bear Creek Park. I didn't travel to the end but will update my review if the western parts have any issues for skaters.

Poudre River Trail

wonderful resource

November, 2017 by auerbach_j

Rode the entire trail west to east and back on a pleasant fall day on a recumbent trike in about 4 hours (moving time). Overall, a very nice ride and wonderful to have a longer trail like this in northern Colorado. It is a great resource to support... visit their excellent website:  http://www.poudretrail.org/

My impressions from the day...

Pros: lightly used, great riding surface (for the most part), mostly flat (if that is what you are looking for), curvy enough to keep it interesting, nice scenery (for the most part), excellent signage, friendly trail users, respectful drivers at road crossings, good facilities along the way

Cons: nebulous trail terminus in Greeley, unsightly oil/mining/fracking operations/detour, other brief industrial areas, short unpaved sections/detours (flood damage), fairly exposed to the elements, would be very hot on hot days

Columbine Trail

In dire need if resurfacing

October, 2017 by rbirell

The bumps and cracks in this trail make it an unpleasant (and sometimes painful) ride. At least on a road bike. Also, a couple of the trail/road crossings are somewhat dangerous. Perhaps this is why so many cyclists ride on the road instead of the trail.

Colorado Riverfront Trail

Junction to Fruita

October, 2017 by kerund

Judging from the other reviews, I don't think I rode the most scenic part of this trail in my out and back. One one hand, there are a few nice stretches along the river, but there is quite a bit of the trail that's close to the busy highway. The paved trail is in good shape and the ride is easy.

Explore Littleton. This trail provides a safe way to navigate town with access to the Columbine and Dutch Creek trails. The beautiful landscaping is an added bonus.

Here's a great suburban trail that get's you around town. The Columbine is an important cog in the network of trails in this area.

This is a scenic trail that follows Clear Creek. This trail just opened so everything looks new and shiny.
