The Colorado Riverfront Trail That You Have Never Heard Of But Need To Visit ASAP
If you love to bike, walk, jog, or hike around Colorado, this trail is just for you! While the Colorado mountains are thought to be the best place for all of the above, there is another part of the Centennial State that is a must for outdoor recreation, as it houses this incredible riverfront trail you have never heard of but need to visit ASAP:
Welcome to the Colorado Riverfront Trail: a gorgeous path that promises "something for everyone!"
Established by the Colorado Riverfront Commission in 1987, the Riverfront Trail is an ongoing project that runs along the Slope's Grand Valley via the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers.
Thanks to both donated time and funds, the Colorado Riverfront Trail spans more than 22 miles, beginning at the Kokopelli Trail System in Loma and ending at Riverbend Park in Palisade.
What can you expect to find on your journey? You will find lots of native trees, shrubbery, and old railroad tracks...
...Incredible views of Colorado's rugged canyons and plateaus...
...And, of course, the river itself!
In addition to all of the above, the Colorado Riverfront Commission hosts several special events and fundraisers on or near the trail, perfect for a fun evening out.
