The Little Dry Creek Trail is ten miles long, paved, and accessible year-round. In 1858, a substantial amount of gold was discovered at Little Dry Creek. Today, the trail takes you through lively residential areas and open stretches. It winds from Arvada to Westminster.
While the Little Dry Creek Trail is mostly used for trail running, walking, and road biking, dogs can join as long as they are leashed. The Little Dry Creek Trail is wheelchair, stroller, and child friendly.
The northwestern portion of the trail winds along four parks: Lakecrest Park, Woodrun Park, Michael Northey Park, and Little Dry Creek Park. This is easily the most scenic stretch of the trail that can’t be missed. The Little Dry Creek Trail is one segment of the Rocky Mountain Greenway Trail and connects to the Denver regional trail system.
At the trail’s eastern end in Westminster, you can make an effortless connection to the 20-mile Clear Creek Trail for further exploring. The trail also runs northwest for several miles through Arvada, by Standley Lake Regional Park.
Conveniently park in Wolff Run Park or at Thompson Elementary School.
