ARAPAHOE ROAD TRAILHEAD DEVELOPMENT

AURORA, CO

 Regional Trailhead Fills a Strategic Gap

Cherry Creek Regional Trail – part of the Colorado Front Range Trail system – is surrounded by native cottonwoods, willows and grasslands and is very popular among bicyclists, equestrians and hikers. To improve accessibility, a new trailhead was constructed at Arapahoe Road between S. Jordan Road and S. Chambers Way.

The trailhead features a new parking lot with improved drainage, trail connections and concrete plaza. For convenience, a new vault toilet was installed near a new picnic shelter at the plaza. Other site furnishings include a bike rack, seating and a drinking fountain.
