Railroad Bed Trail (CO) Description

Located on Aurora’s south end, the Railroad Bed Trail offers a 2-mile diagonal pathway within Cherry Creek State Park, a recreational gem with opportunities for camping, fishing, swimming and picnicking, among others. On your journey, watch for wildlife, such as deer, coyotes, foxes, rabbits, pheasant and other birds.

Suitable for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, the single-track dirt pathway connects to a trail at either end: Cottonwood Creek Trail (another natural-surface path) to the north and the 40-mile, Denver-bound Cherry Creek Regional Trail to the south. The Piney Creek Trail, a paved 10-mile route, is also close to the rail-trail’s southern end.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found within Cherry Creek State Park (4201 S. Parker Rd., Aurora). The closet parking lot is at the trailhead for the Cottonwood Creek Trail, off W. Lake View Road. Cross the street and head south a short distance to reach the start of the Railroad Bed Trail on your left.
