Cherry Creek Regional Trail

NOTICE: March 26, 2018 – Effective immediately: Approximately 2.25 miles of the Cherry Creek Regional Trail will be closed until further notice due to construction. 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 at this time around the construction. We apologize for the inconvenience, however, during the construction new concrete trail surface will be built that removes a dirt road detour in the trail. When open, the trail will be fully concrete all the way to Franktown! Anticipated opening of the trail is in the Spring of 2019. Follow Douglas County Outdoors on Facebook for updates about the construction and possible future detours.
