Wide dirt trail along Lee Gulch through Littleton, CO.

Runner Notes

Well maintained wide dirt trail. Relatively quiet considering it's in the city.

Description

This trail splits off from the Mary Carter Greenway Trail at the first "round-about" south of Hudson Gardens heading east. This trail is very easy to follow all the way to it's connection with the Highline Canal trail.

Lee Gulch is a great city trail because it gets a lot less traffic than others in the area. It is a good place for a run when you don't have time to escape to more secluded trails.

There is potential for making longer loops (mostly on dirt) with this trail by incorporating connecting trails such as the Highline Canal, Dry Creek, Mary Carter Greenway, etc.

Flora & Fauna

Typical city flora & fauna; limited wildflowers along the gulch, birds, small mammals, & a slim chance of seeing coyotes.
