Mountain Biking Coal Creek Trail

***   Add a review
#390 of 1,348 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#3,833 in the world

The trail is a 10 foot wide graded path that runs along Coal Creek. The trail is lined by trees most of the way, goes by a golf course, and is rather serene. It's not technical in any way, but will give you a chance to work on your spinning. Good ride to take with the young kids. There are a few livestock gates to pass through, and you may see a small herd of horses that are not afraid of bikers. The trail passes under the major roads in the area.

Getting there
From 287, travel to Louisville. Turn West on Highway 42/Empire Road (East is Exempla Circle). Go for about 1.5 miles, and on the North side is the Aquarius Trailhead parking lot (just West of the Louisville Cemetary). It's at the top of the hill.

    Suburban bike path best used for making a run to the local strip mall. Mountain biking, not so much.

    Not super exciting, but good for a lunch or after work spin.

    This is a fun trail to get from Louisville to some of the trails west of Superior. I especially enjoy riding Coal Creek Trail to the new loop trail that starts in old town Superior.

    Coal Creek trail is a nice little trail. Bring your dogs with you! This trail is about as easy as it gets. Nice and smooth, a few short hills. There's a few nice short single tracks that run closer to the stream. Defiantly check it out if you live near by.

    This is a great city path with a few little segments of flat singletrack that dart in and out of the main trail. Lots of Herons and Kingfishers plus the occasional housecat. As crusherfine trails go, this is a pretty good one. I'll give it a "6" with the caveat that this is the highest possible score for a crusherfine city trail. I ride it all the time.
