Description

Broomfield County's Lake Link Trail connects the east of Broomfield County trails and open space to trails and pathways in the western part of the county. The trail gets its name from McKay Lake (and trail) in the east, connecting to Josh's Pond and open space and trails to the west. It also connects to Boulder County's trails and pathways via the Rock Creek Trail and the Rock Creek Farm Loop. There are excellent vistas of the Front and Back Range as well as the Continental Divide.
