Conservatory West Trail Description

This is a north-south path located in the Conservatory at the Plains subdivision of Aurora. The concrete trail sits in a neighborhood greenbelt and allows residents to reach their parks without having to drive. Great Plains Park sits at the north end and acts as a trailhead. The trail also passes through Switchgrass Park, Blue Grama Grass Park and the soccer fields. In addition, users can take the Conservatory Trail to connect to Aurora's wider network of pathways. The trail provides access to the Powerline Trail at Jewell Avenue, the Unnamed Creek Trail and the soft-surface Plains Trail which runs along the border of the neighborhood and the Plains Conservation Center.

The 10-ft wide trail generally slopes upwards towards the midpoint and then inclines towards the other end. A segment of trail allows users to continue under Hampden Avenue to Quincy Avenue.

Parking and Trail Access

There is parking at Great Plains Park (20100 E. Jewell Ave., Aurora).

I Use This Trail For Different Loops

This is a very nice, well-maintained trail that runs from Quincy Ave to the Great Plains Park at Jewell. There is a signal crossing at Hampden or an underpass that is a bit out of the way. You pass some ball fields and a few parks then a climb to about Wesley Dr where it flattens out and continues to Great Plains Park. Using this as the eastern leg, Quincy on the south, and the Powerline Trail on the north I have many different loops changing the west leg. With the Toll Gate Creek Trail, it is about an 11-mile loop. If, at Horseshoe Park, you use the West Toll Gate Creek Trail it's about 12 miles. Again, at Horseshoe Park, if you go to the Cherry Creek Spillway Trail it's about 16 miles. If you want a longer ride you can take the TGCT to the Highline Canal Trail, you can ride around the reservoir at Cherry Creek, or use the Piney Creek trail out of the reservoir instead of Quincy.
