A long trail connecting several cities from Golden to Commerce City.
Really neat trail that goes through Golden, along the creek. While visiting downtown Golden be sure to check out the old historic buildings (school, house, farm, etc). I've seen a handful of people gold panning, tubing and kayaking in the river. Great for families with strollers.
Next time we will bring friends and tubes! The hike was more of a walk, but it was perfect for our 6 yo.
Beautiful spot for river tubing or a short bike trail ride.
Beautiful trail we did 11.27 miles in 4:32:)
Nice Park. River was flowing strong. Few rafters.
A good trail for a family walk. Flat and wide.
Done this several times. A paved bike path connecting several cities. Follows the creek most of the way. Dirt paths are closer to the creek.
