Kipling Trail Description

The Kipling Trail sits beside Kipling Parkway/ State Route 391 extending from Lakewood to Littleton, southwest of Denver. While there’s enough miles to offer a good workout, or to run errands between the residential and commercial pockets along the parkway, what’s especially great is that the Kipling Trail intersects with no less than five area favorite trails. From north to south, the trails are Bear Creek Trail, the Weaver Gulch Regional Trail, the Lilley Gulch Trail, Dutch Creek Regional Trail and the C-470 Bikeway, which serves as its endpoint.

Other points of interest include the numerous parks, schools, churches and local businesses.

Parking and Trail Access

The trail can be accessed from any of the intersecting streets.

There is one designated parking area in Littleton off S Kipling Parkway W Ken Caryl Avenue & W Roxbury Avenue.  

You can also park in the following areas:

  • Lakewood Park (150 S Kipling St., Lakewood)
  • Harriman Lake Park (W Quincy Ave. & S Kipling Pkwy, Littleton) – also has restrooms
  • Lilly Gulch Park (6147 S Holland Way, Littleton) – also has restrooms
  • Ken Caryl Ranch Community Park (7950 Sangre De Cristo Rd) – also has restrooms
