Steven and I rode the brand new West Rail Line to Golden, Colorado on its first day of operation.
That was fun. It was even more fun to cycle to Golden and back the next day.
As the name implies the Clear Creek Trail follows Clear Creek from metro Denver to Golden. We joined the trail near its mid-point as it passes through Wheat Ridge. The trail has been upgraded over the years and now has an excellent surface for most of its length.
A major landmark signals your arrival at the outskirts of Golden. The massive MillerCoors brewery. This is just a part of it. Steven and I were intrigued by the round structure to the left. We don’t know what it is houses or is for.
Next comes the bridge across West 44th Avenue.
The trail then takes you through Vanover Park and alongside Parfet Park.
Then comes History Park with its late 1800s mountain ranch buildings.
We looped around the History Park and onto Washington Avenue.
Where we parked ourselves outside Goozell Yogurt and Coffee for a treat before riding back to Wheat Ridge.
