The East Cheyenne Greenway provides a pleasant route through residential areas of eastern Cheyenne. The eastern half follows N. College Drive for much of its length and ends with an expansive view of the Sun Valley Open Space. The second half extends the trail west from N.College Drive to Holliday Park. This part of the trail travels mostly through industrial Cheyenne, and also provides access to the athletic fields of VFW Pride Park.
At Holliday Park, one of 25 behemoth steam engines is displayed and preserved. 'Big Boy' steam engines were the biggest in the world when they were built for Union Pacific in the 40's. Cheyenne's own Big Boy was retired in 1958 and relocated to the park in 1963.
Parking is available at United Nations Park (E. 10th Street and Monroe Avenue) near the southern end of the trail. Take the sidewalk west along E. 10th Street for 3 blocks. The street will end at Baldwin Drive; turn left (south) on Baldwin and travel 2 more blocks to E. 8th Street. Take a right (turn west) on E. 8th Street and travel a short distance to the trail.
You can also find parking, as well as restrooms, tennis and basketball courts at Holliday Park. The parking lot can be accessed via E. 16th Street.
Cheyenne has recently expanded their trail network so that now you can ride 11 miles uninterrupted from I-25 near Western Hills Blvd to Holliday Park near downtown. This connects the Dry Creek and East Cheyenne greenways, and adds the new Sun Valley greenway in the south. We parked at Cahill Park off Dell Range Blvd and headed west on the Dry Creek trail all the way to the end at I-25. The trail is concrete with some moderate ups and downs, running between the airport and the back of businesses on Dell Range. After returning to Cahill, we went east on the Dry Creek, on the new Taft Rd connector, on the East Cheyenne greenway, on the new Sun Valley greenway which runs along the railroad, and ends at Logan Ave. There also is a short connector that takes you to Holliday Park. These are all connected now to form the Cheyenne Greenways with signs along the way. They are also concrete with some moderate hills. A nice few hours in Cheyenne. See my pics with sights and tips along the way.
