Cherry Creek Spillway Trail Description

The Cherry Creek Spillway Trail offers wide open views with the Denver skyline as a distant backdrop. Along the way, recreational opportunities abound as the path winds through Aurora's Wheel Park and Olympic Park.

The trail also provides an important connection between other trails that run through Horseshoe Park (Toll Gate Creek Trail, West Toll Gate Creek Trail and Powerline Trail) and those in Cherry Creek State Park, at its southern tip.

Trail-goers should note that there are on-street crossings at Iliff Street and Chambers Street, and use caution.

Parking and Trail Access

At its northern end, parking can be found in Horseshoe Park (2125 S. Kittredge Way). Mid-trail, parking is available at Olympic Park (15501 E. Yale Avenue).
