UPDATE: July 30, 2019 – Approximately 2.25 miles of the Cherry Creek Regional Trail continues to be closed until further notice due to construction. The closure is from the North Pinery Trail Head Connection to the Pinery Glen trail connection just north of Bayou Gulch Road. There is no detour around the construction at this time. The trail is anticipated to open in early Fall 2019. We apologize for the inconvenience and will open the trail once it is safe to do so. Thank you for your patience.
The Cherry Creek Regional Trails (part of the Colorado Front Range Trail) parallels Cherry Creek and will eventually connect Cherry Creek State Park to the north and Castlewood Canyon State Park to the south. The trail connects parks and open space properties, as well as Parker, Centennial and Franktown allowing visitors to enjoy cottonwoods, willows and grasslands along the trail.
