The Weaver Gulch Regional Trail runs east-west across the northwestern edge of the suburb of Littleton, following the course of a greenbelt converted from a drainage ditch through a series of residential neighborhoods and local parks. This relatively smooth and flat path provides a connection at the western end to the long, popular C-470 Bikeway, giving residents access to the area's premier trail network.
Beginning in the east, the trail starts from the parking lot of Harriman Lake Park, and runs along the southern edge of the titular lake. The lake, fed by the drainage ditch upon which the trail runs, offers a great opportunity for fishing, or trail users can walk along the remainder of the lakeshore on a short, unpaved interpretive trail, which points out some of the natural and historical features of the lake and its prairie surrounds. The trail continues up to Quincy Avenue, and heads west under Simms Street via a culvert, where it runs beneath power lines which large neighborhoods on either side. The trail then runs through Weaver Hollow Park, which offers parking and a host of recreational activities, before continuing on to the southwest into the open grassland of Weaver Creek Park.
The official route of the trail ends in the park at S Cole Street, but trail users can cross the street and use the skinnier path to head towards Kendallvue Elementary School. The path widens again at the school and continues a short distance through another neighborhood before ending at the junction with the C-470 Bikeway.
Parking is available at the trail's eastern end in Harriman Lake Park, and in Weaver Hollow Park off of W Stanford Avenue.
To reach the eastern end of the trail from the direction of Denver, take I-25 south towards Littleton, then take exit 207B and follow signs to continue onto US-85 heading south. Proceed on US-85 into Englewood, then exit right to head west onto US-285. Take US-285 for several miles, then exit and turn left onto S Kipling St. Continue for about a quarter-mile, then turn right into the parking lot for Harriman Lake Park, just past the intersection with W Quincy Ave.
