Best Bikeway in Progress - 2005
Sand Creek Regional Greenway
Slowly but surely, the pieces for this thirteen-mile route that cross the old Stapleton Airport site are filling in. Eventually, the soft-surface trail, which is open to non- motorized vehicles only, will connect part of a fifty-mile loop of urban trails, going from the High Line Canal Bikeway in Aurora to the Platte River Greenway. Riders have to adapt to some construction sites, but backers insist that there is light at the end of the tunnel -- and plenty of room to roam in the future.
