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.

• Red-Tailed Hawk Park (23701 E. Hinsdale Way)
