The Clear Creek Trail runs more than 20 miles from metro Denver, through Wheat Ridge, to Golden along a picturesque creek with views of the North and South Table Mountains.
A highlight of the trail is the legendary Coors Brewing Company on the path's western end; factory tours are available. In Golden, the trail runs right along the river and travelers will see families tubing down the river and fly fishermen along its banks. The trail is paved downtown, but becomes crushed stone and more tree-lined as you head west out of town. Numerous pedestrian bridges dot the route, allowing trail users easy access to both sides of Clear Creek, and interpretative panels along the way share the region's history.
A parking lot can be found off Clear Creek Canyon Road on the trail's western end. In Golden, parking is available in Parfet Park (along Jackson Street) and Vanover Park (along Water Street).
Mid-way along the trail, parking is available at Prospect Park, Anderson Park and Creekside Park in Wheat Ridge.
