Big Dry Creek Trail (Littleton) Description

Big Dry Creek Trail provides a pleasant connector between the High Line Canal Trail and the Mary Carter Greenway, two jewels in the trail network of the greater Denver area.

Although the trail is in an urban setting—running through Littleton and Centennial—it doesn't feel that way as it winds through forest and a riparian corridor. The 10-foot-wide path is concrete for its entire length on a continuous, very shallow slope.

Along the way, it passes through two parks—Progress Park and Belleview Park—which provide drinking fountains, restrooms, and parking. On its western side, the trail ends with a 250-foot-long pedestrian bridge over the South Platte River, where the river meets the Big Dry Creek.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available along the trail in Progress Park (5100 S. Hickory Street) and Belleview Park (5001 S. Inca Street). On its eastern end, where the trail joins the High Line Canal Trail, there is on-street parking in the cul-de-sac at Sunset Court and other streets.
