“Alternate trail when the dam section of Barr Lake Perimeter Trail is closed or for a change of pace.
— Rob M.
The Trail Behind Dam is a short connector that is very similar to the Barr Lake Perimeter Trail
. It generally follows the same route, but isn't subject to closures like the portion of the Barr Lake Perimeter Trail
that crosses the dam. It's similar in trail surface, and is mild in grade.
Birds, deer, toads, fish, cottonwood trees, lots of cockleburrs and and other spiky/clingy seedpods.
