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).

Cherry Creek Spillway Trail

The trail starts at Mexico Ave (a new section of the trail runs north through the neighborhood but doesn't go very far or connect with any other trail yet) and runs south near Horseshoe Park, Wheel Park, and Olympic Park before taking you into Cherry Creek Reservoir. There is a bit of a climb into Olympic Park and after you cross Chambers a climb that may challenge newcomers. After the climb you descend to the Hampden/Parker Rd junction. Most of the crossings are underpasses but you do have to cross one or two off ramps at signaled crossings. Then you are in Cherry Creek Park.
