Douglas County connects local trails with regional trails to create an overall trail system that benefits all users whether on foot, bicycle or horse. There are trails with breathtaking views of the Colorado Front Range mountains, the Denver Metro area, open meadows, grassland vegetation, and wildlife. And because we know how much you love to keep the trails user-friendly for everyone, we like to encourage practicing well-established trail etiquette by all.
Douglas County Open Space properties offer trails and equestrian trails to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. All trails are soft-surface, non-motorized multiple-use for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Dogs are allowed, with the exception of Columbine and Sharptail Ridge, but must be on leash except for the off-leash dog areas at Glendale Farm and Greenland. For more information please visit Rules and Regulations.
