Big Dry Creek Trail

There is no shortage of diversions on this trail. In fact, getting from point A to point B may not even be your goal on the Big Dry Creek Trail. Having fun along the way seems to be the order of the day.
In fact, at the (Westminster) City Park area alone, you could see a movie, go ice skating, have a great lunch, watch a softball game, play soccer, throw a frisbee, or hang out at the Butterfly Pavilion. You could also head off on another trail such as the Highline Canal Trail.
Another great aspect of this trail is that you are only on a road for about a half mile and that road (99th Ave.) is a very sedate little byway. It is hard to believe that this trail passes through such a busy, industrious part of Colorado, because it is such a relaxing ride. It’s one of those types of rides where you could put yourself on auto-pilot and just let the bike follow the path while you daydream and sightsee.
For out-of-town guests on this trail, it has a few hotels near mile 4.3 (if you’re starting at Standley Lake). Even better, you will find a variety of types of hotels from fairly expensive to relatively cheap. One of the hotels is a Westin and another is called Spring Hill Suite by Marriott.
