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 that connects 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 begins west of the Hwy 58 overpass at Clear Creek Trail and ends at Salvia Street.
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.
