This is a great trail I am not in the race shape I used to be in and I am new to the area so I was looking for something I could get my feet wet. The trail is very reminiscent of some of my favorite races from back in the day. Wide open fast with some good little inclines just enough to get your heart rate up but not enough where someone who isn't in elite shape can get up. At any time you can pop off into the highlands ranch back country trail (Which be aware this is for residents only they say you need to present a rec ID if they ask) But I rolled the dice and was met with some very pleasant easy to moderate single track. I really enjoyed it if you need a trail to boost your confidence a bit before you head out to the big boys such as Deer Creek this is the trail for you. Or maybe you want to get your better half's feet wet with some MTB this would also be the trail for you.

Good afternoon burner. Trails are typically empty around lunch-2pm so you can whip it up pretty good without concern about face planting into an oncoming rider.

Good for a quick afternoon burner. Love the easy access to the trails and they are typically empty mid day if you prefer lunch time rides.

I enjoy this trail...it is a good workout. Not really mountain biking as in roots, rocks, drops etc, but some short uphill an downhill sections. The trail is pretty well marked so you don't stray into private HRCA trails or Back Country HOA trails. Watch out for rabbits, snakes, horseback riders, runners, dogs, elk et al. Busy on the weekend, not so busy during the week.

It gets you out and it's close would be nice if it were a little more technical and you could ride the fancy people trails

This is a good path for gettig around HIghlands Ranch and Lone Tree, but not much in the way of mountain biking. Most of it is baby stroller friendly, super groomed wide path. Parts can be very busy with other trail users.

We chose this trail to test out my bf's new xt and my new clipless set up. I wouldn't say I am an advanced rider but I'm pretty decent on technical trails and this is not one of them. The East-west Regional Trail is a nice and easy trail, nothing technical other than a few switchbacks. The path is clear and packed with no obstacles in sight. It can be boring for the "advanced" biker. If you are looking for an exciting ride, look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a nice relaxed trail with tons of things to see-- song birds, prairie dogs and bunny rabbits-- LOTS of bunny rabbits, then this is the trail for you.

Not a particularly technical trail but a great workout non-the-less. Sections in and around Highlands Ranch are more singletrack and sections in Lone Tree are more like a fire road / gravel trail. Grades are challenging at times but still very doable by almost anyone. Not a trail if you are looking to build your technical skills but a great one if you are looking for good aerobic workouts.

I mostly ride this trail to connect with other trails in the Highlands Ranch area; Bluffs, Monarch, Backcountry and Highlands Point all the way to Redstone Park are accessed by this trail. Decent trail, although fairly wide with fake surface in several sections they put down which gets a bit rutted after a few rainstorms.

I would actually classify this is an unpaved bike path. It's perfect for taking the family on.
It suspect it would be fun on a fully rigid 29er single speed.
