JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — Construction crews are continuing work on the Peaks to Plains Trail by adding a path east to Golden and completing a portion called the “Mouth of the Canyon.”

The 65-mile pedestrian and bike trail will serve 3 million residents in the Denver metro area.

The first four miles of the trail opened in 2016 and 2017 along Clear Creek.

Eventually the goal is to connect the South Platte Trail in Denver to the headwaters of Clear Creek at Loveland Pass.
