Overview

Paddle boats and the carousel are open at the lakes during the summer. Fishing at both lakes for various stocked sport fish. A Colorado Fishing license is required.

Runner Notes

There are few inclines and all paved concrete.

Description

This run is on an easy path that would be great for beginners to add length to their run as fitness levels increase. The loop can be extended to visit local Recreation Center for swimming and additional workouts. A great multi-use trail, you can walk, run or bike the trail.

This run includes a segment of the Grange Hall Creek Trail and then loops through the figure-8 of Carpenter Park Lakes "Loop 4" and returns the way it came.

Signage on this trail is inconsistent, though it's not difficult to find your way. Pics included of signs near the beginning to help you get on the trail from the parking lot. An unmarked bridge connects the Grange Hall Creek Trail to the Carpenter Park Lakes "Loop 4" trail around the 1.1 mile mark.

Flora & Fauna

Foxes and coyotes can be seen during twilight hours. The lakes enjoy an ever changing bird population during the spring and fall migrations. As many as 4 turtles have been spotted in the larger lake.

A nice day on the Carpenter Loop. On this particular day, geese were flocking every which way.

Trail goes under the railroad tracks. Yes, here it is back to being called "Grange Hall Creek Trail."

The first sign showing how to get to trail, not far from parking lot, just after crossing the street.

The second sign that will put you on the trail. Not sure why the trail changes names.
