Niver Canal Trail Description

The Niver Canal Trail parallels the Coronado Parkway for nearly 2 miles across Thornton, a northern suburb of Denver. About mid-way, the trail passes Rotella Park, which offers restrooms, picnic shelters, a playground, and volleyball and basketball courts.

At its eastern end, the trail connects to the Platte River Trail, a 28-mile north-south route along the waterway.

From the trail's western terminus, you can easily continue your journey on the Niver Creek Trail. Make the connection on the west side of Grant Street, only a few blocks away. The trail travels 2 miles northwest, connecting two parks and the Niver Creek Open Space.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Rotella Park (Coronado Parkway and Nueva Vista Drive).
