Description

The Ralston Creek Trail is a fun and enjoyable trail that runs upstream from the Clear Creek Trail. It heads over the suspension bridge near I-70 and Sheridan, generally heading west through: Gold Strike Park, Creekside Park, Memorial Park, Hoskinson Park, North Jeffco Park, Ralston Cove Park, Arvada Tennis Center, Oak Park, Davis Lane Park, Danny Kendricks Parks, O'Kane Park, Ralston Valley Park, Maple Valley Park, West Woods Golf Course, to and around Tucker Lake Park and the Arvada Reservoir at its western extent.

Along this route, users will meet bikers, hikers, joggers, walkers, and rollerbladers also enjoying the trail. West of Eldridge Street, this trail includes a separate soft surface trail for equestrian riders, joggers and mountain bikers.

Since the trail follows the Ralston Creek, the grade is never too steep. This is a great trail that takes you through stream-side habitats, ponds, and open space parks! enjoy.
