Coal Creek Trail

Trail Meter: 

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.  This regional trail is also an excellent way to "ride to your ride" if you're off to tackle the famous Dirty Bismark route.

The Coal Creek Trail is part of the larger Coal Creek / Rock Creek Regional Trail System.  Check out the trail brochure for additional information about the trail systen and connections to surrounding neighborhoods.
