Lake Link Trail Description

As its name implies, the Lake Link Trail connects many of the region's lakes, offering picturesque views of the water and surrounding mountains. The trail begins in Hunter Douglas Business Park and ends near McKay Lake, a tranquil oasis in one of Denver's major suburbs. The path follows the southern borders of the Carolyn Holmberg Preserve and Ruth Roberts Park as it makes its way east, and traverses some of Broomfield's most desirable neighborhoods.

 

Parking and Trail Access

A large parking lot is available in Hunter Douglas Business Park, at the trail's western tip. Parking is also available near Stearns Lake in the Carolyn Holmberg Preserve.

Lake Link Trail Reviews

A community connector

s

We bike a portion of the Lake Link Trail just east of Sheridan Boulevard every weekday morning and afternoon to take our daughter to and from her elementary school. We love it! It makes for such a pleasant commute as the trail runs along a pretty creek with tall grasses and trees set amid a quiet residential neighborhood. Here, the trail is paved and well-used by families with young children.

East end of the trail is good for biking

s

The trail is great from McKay lake to Sagar reservoir, then it changes to a road trail. The western end has steep turns and switchbacks over a gravel trail. Very difficult to follow as the trail markings are inconsistent. Sections of the trail are arid and remote. Bring snacks and water. Look for prairie dogs and other wildlife along the trail. Recommend a cruising bike or a mountain bike with wide tires. The large portions of gravel make it unsuitable for a road bike.

Cookie-Cutters

s

Probably my least favorite trail in Colorado so far. I've been running around here for about 8 months now. This trail just takes you through cookie-cutter suburban neighborhoods. If you're walking your dog, maybe it's a fun, quick trail. But for running, I don't recommend it.
