Piney Creek Trail Description

Aurora’s Piney Creek Trail provides a pleasant route across town with few street crossings. The paved pathway begins at the Ponderosa Preserve and heads northwest, winding through residential neighborhoods. Along the way, the trail passes the Saddle Rock Golf Course, Red-Tailed Hawk Park, which has a wetland boardwalk and sheltered picnic tables, and Larkspur Park, which offers a playground and horseshoe pits.

The trail ends at Cherry Creek State Park, which offers numerous recreational amenities, including camping and a marina. For more adventure, travelers can continue on the 40-mile Cherry Creek Regional Trail, which heads up to downtown Denver.

From south to north, parking is available in:
• Red-Tailed Hawk Park (23701 E. Hinsdale Way)
• Larkspur Park (22551 E Plymouth Cir.)
• Cherry Creek State Park (4201 S. Parker Rd.)

Piney Creek Trail Reviews


If you go to the park at the beginning of the trail to the west the map takes you to an open field! Far from the actual trail spent two wasted hours!

Nice trail but…

It would be nice to have more clear signage at some of the areas (around the preschool). I really had to watch the map on my phone which requires me to stop. Otherwise it was a an easy ride with a few moderate slopes. Took me 45 minutes from Red tail hawk park to Cherry Creek.

Beautiful and not crowded

It got a little bit confusing in a few areas for those of us who are directionally challenged. But it was a fine fall flat ride. ¿

Fun trail - Lots of Interesting views and resting spots

I had the opportunity to take this trail from mid-section to end at Cherry Creek State Park. I enjoyed it so much. The trail takes you through parks and follows streams and creeks. You get a diverse view of Colorado landscape including breathtaking views of the mountains on a clear day.
