“Flat, easy trail along banks of the South Platte River from Carson Nature Center to C-470 bike path.”
— Scott Hosie
Features: Birding — River/Creek — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
From the Carson Nature Center, follow the dirt trail paralleling the bike path until you reach the bridge. Do not cross the bridge, turn left and stay on the trail along the east side of the river. From here the trail is easy to follow all the way to highway C-470. At highway C-470 find the best path along the rocks under the bridge. From here it's a short distance and you'll meet the C-470 bike path.
Flora & Fauna
Depending on the season, you will see various birds, rodents, and deer along the trail.
