The City of Golden offers an extensive and interconnected trail system of 24 miles, providing diversity in both types of trail experience and destinations. Regional Trail connections provide a link to neighboring communities and open space.
The W. 44th Avenue Trail is an integral trail connection which will connect Tony Grampsas Park to the rest of the incorporated city with a 10 ft concrete trail that is independent of the traffic lanes of W. 44th Ave. Just over three quarters of a mile, the trail connection will begin west of the Hwy 58 overpass at Clear Creek Trail and end at Salvia Street. The City has received overwhelming support for the project.
This section of trail includes a quarter mile priority segment of the Colorado State Parks Front Range Trail Project (CFRT). The vision of the CFRT is to create a multi-purpose trail from Wyoming to New Mexico, along the Front Range of Colorado. The 876-mile trail will link diverse communities, scenic landscapes, cultural and historic points, parks, open space and other attractions.
Projected completion is planned for late February 2017. For more information, contact Dan Hartman at (303) 384-8150.
