Toll Gate Creek Trail Description

The Toll Gate Creek Trail traverses 12 miles across 3 distinct sections across Aurora, Colorado. There is a 2 mile northern segment that runs through Sand Creek Park. The second section is 6.6 miles and runs from E Alameda Parkway to E Quincy Ave. The third section is 3 miles that runs from E Tufts Cir. to E. Ida Cir.

At the north end of the third section, the Toll Gate Creek Trail connects with the DeLaney Community Farm, a 158-acre scenic property that educates and allows members to sustainably grow agriculture. Here, it connects to the High Line Canal Trail.

Recreational opportunities abound as the trail continues south along a picturesque creek, and passes Tollgate Park, Horseshoe Park and Hampden Run Park. In Horseshoe Park, the trail connects to the Cherry Creek Spillway Trail, the Powerline Trail and the West Toll Gate Creek Trail.

Toll Gate Creek Trail Reviews

My First Trail

When I first got my bike I had no idea all these trails existed. While riding around my neighborhood with a friend he spotted the trail from Hampden Run Park. He told me this would be the base on my rides and he was so right. You have to ride the sidewalk on Quincy to the start of the trail but from there it continues up to Alameda where it connects with the High Line Canal Trail. Along the way you pass Hampden Run Park, Hutchinson Pond, Unnamed Creek Trail, Aurora's Central Recreation Center, Powerline Trail, Horseshoe Park, West Toll Gate Creek Trail, Cherry Creek Spillway Trail, and Tollgate Park with the Pipeline Trail. Just before Horseshoe Park there is a pump and repair station. At Horseshoe park there is a water fountain and restrooms. There are underpasses at Hampden, Mississippi, and Alameda. With all the connecting trails there are many rides you can build from this trail. This site mentioned parking at Quincy Reservoir. You may need an Aurora park pass or purchase a day pass to park there. But Summit Elementary is just across the street.

Toll Gate Creek Trail Hampden to quincy

I have been walking this trail and others and am so disappointed with the lack of pride people take in this area. Benches littered with cigarette butts , broken glass that can damage a dogs foot pads, and just general lack of upkeep. Not sure who is responsible but this is not what this should look like, we can and should do better....
