A guide for the bike paths and walking paths located throughout our beautiful state

Boulder Creek Trail Colorado

Colorado has an extensive network of paved and unpaved recreational trails for bike riding, walking and running that are a wonderful and special way to see this beautiful state.

These multi-use tails are sometimes referred to as bikeways, bike paths, walking tracks, running paths, pedestrian trails or cycling routes. Whatever the term, these recreational trails offer a way to experience very special parts of our state that you may not see as you drive the roadways.

WalkRideColorado.com covers over 100 multi-use, paved and unpaved trail systems that are placed in very lovely out-of-the-way locations or run through the heart of urban areas. The trails are often located away from busy traffic and congestion. You can travel through cottonwood groves, along quiet creeks, through evergreen forests, open grassland, past commercial areas, residential neighborhoods and parks or around one of our many resort towns.

This site is a reference for those that wish to visit these exceptional places, to walk their dog, take a run, observe some wildlife, ride a bike, go fishing or push a stroller. Enjoying a day on the trail can also be a great educational and inexpensive family excursion.

WalkRideColorado.com provides descriptions of the trails and zoomable Google maps for the trails along with references to parking and restroom facilities. Each trail description includes a Off-site Links section with links to the official web sites for the trails and other local information.

Whether you are a Colorado native, new to living in the state or just here for a visit, we hope that WalkRideColorado.com can help you locate a trail that leads you to a wonderful experience.
