COAL CREEK TRAIL in LOUISVILLE, CO
This is a wonderful trail in Boulder county running along Coal Creek throughout Louisville, CO. This 14.8 mile trail begins in Superior, goes through Louisville, Lafayette, and ends in Erie.
A mix of dirt and pavement, this trail winds and gently rolls through nice neighborhoods, vast open space parks, and the Coal Creek golf course. There are numerous gorgeous sights along the way, with impressive views of the mountains.
We picked up the trail just outside the hotel we stayed at, the Marriott Courtyard, near US 36, and McCaslin Rd. There were several signs along the trail to keep us on track, for there are several trails that branch off of it. One of which is the US 36 bikeway, a 16 mile bike path the goes from Boulder to Westminister.
Truly, a great running trail. We wish we had taken a few days to explore different segments in each town. Oh well… but, this is another reason to return and continue the adventure!😊 I recommend all interested runners to see for themselves how nice this trail is!
Sharing smiles and adventurous trail miles!
