The Rock Creek Trail is a soft-surface trail that generally parallels Rock Creek from the Coalton Trailhead in Superior through the Carolyn Holmberg Preserve ending at the Rock Creek East Trailhead in Lafayette. There are several missing links along the route, but once complete will provide twelve miles of trail and merge with the Coal Creek Trail at the confluence of the two creeks.

These soft-surface trails are just sourth of the town of Hygine.  You can access the trails from N 75th Street, just south of the railroad tracks.  This beautiful Boulder County Open Space property has trails which wind amongst a series of ponds, with bird watching opportunities and some nice views of the mountains.

The Niwot Trails are a system of trails which wind through and around the town of Niwot, a spaghetti bowl of trails which add up to about 6.4 miles total.  Spectacular mountain views and shady cottonwood-lined paths along irrigation canals await you.

A few small trailheads service the Niwot Trails network; parking is limited so please ride your bike to the trail if you're local.

This trail parallels Coal Creek from 66th Street in Superior and travels east to 120th Street in Lafayette.  Beloved by bike commuters who want to stay away from cars, this soft-surface trail is wide, leaving loads of room for lots of trail users.  The western terminus of the Coal Creek Trail occurs in the town of Superior at Town Hall ... just around the corner from the junction of the Meadowlark and Mayhoffer-Singletree trails.
