The Peaks to Plains Trail, a key future state-wide connection, gained another three quarters of a mile on Friday, September 29, 2017. This section adds more to the popular trail which will eventually span the entirety of Clear Creek Canyon Park. In addition to the new trail segment, a developed recreation area and trailhead opened to the public in the part of the canyon known as ‘The Big Easy’.The trailhead and recreation area has a restroom, 54 parking spaces, fishing platforms over the water, picnic pavilions, a geology garden, and a boardwalk in areas where vegetation needs to be protected. A new bridge also spans the creek, leading onto the Peaks to Plains Trail, which connects to the Mayhem Gulch trailhead westward up the canyon.
Thank you to everyone who joined us on Friday for the festivities. Experience the trail for yourself: drive 9 miles west on US 6 from US 6/Hwy 93/Hwy 58 intersection
