Urban Trails In Norther Colorado
My wife (72) and I greatly enjoy exploring urban trails as we travel. So, we have been thinking and planning to explore some trails in the Greeley/Longmont/Loveland/Fort Collins area.
Likely we would stay at a motel in one of the above, and do about 20-30 miles each day.
So far, I have found the following trails. (By trails, for my wife - 72, I mean a cement, asphalt or hard-surface gravel-type trail, pretty level).
Trails in N Colorado
Fort Collins –
Poudre Trail – 10 miles
Spring Creek Trail – 7 miles
Fossil Creek Trail – 4 miles
Spring Creek South – 3.5
Misc equals 29 miles total
Loveland – 15.5 milesfrom Boyd Lake to the Big Thompson River
Longmont – St Vrain Greenway 5 miles and several other greenways
Greeley – Poudre River Trail Corridor – 20 miles going west along the Big Thompson River
Previous trails we have explored in the past in Colorado include all of the Summit County trail system, Grand Junction, the Glenwood - Aspen trail, the Glenwood Canyon trail, Salida, the Santa Fe Trail near Palmer Lake/AFA, some of the CO Springs area, etc.
I am wondering if I have missed any trails in the Northern Colorado area, or if anyone had some comments about the trails I have located.
We will be riding hybrids/mtn bikes
