New Trail Segment Now Open!

The new half-mile paved trail segment provides an off-street connection through open space and affords great views of Clear Creek and opportunities for wildlife viewing!  It also provides a more direct route for users and minimized exposure to vehicular traffic.  The segment runs north on the west side of Kipling St. from 41st Ave. to the new Kipling West Trailhead.  The trailhead features an informational kiosk and small parking area.  The trail continues west, connecting to the Moore St. Bridge and existing Clear Creek Trail.  This is certainly a welcomed feature to our community and we hope it greatly enhances your Clear Creek Trail experience in Wheat Ridge!
