South Valley Park to Roxborough Park Water Tank.
March 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
Since JeffCo’s Deer Creek Canyon Park parking lot is closed due to muddy conditions we are meeting at Swallow Trail Parking lot (South Valley Park) instead. It is just north of the original site off of Valley Road. From there we head south to Deer Creek and west a short piece to Grizzly and then Cougar and back to Deer Creek. (Short option skips Grizzly and just heads down Deer Cr.) We continue down Deer Creek Canyon Rd east to Wadsworth. Then we go south on Wadsworth, east on Waterton Rd to the bike path that connects us up to Village Circle West. Taking that through a neighborhood where the deer feed (see photo) we connect to Rampart Range Rd and go south into the Roxborough neighborhood and go all the way to the high point of their paved roads near the water tank for a nice view. (see photo) On the way back we swing east off of Rampart onto Village Circle East through a bike friendly neighborhood and end up back on Rampart where we head north a few blocks to our rest stop at the gas station at Waterton and Rampart. From there we retrace the route except that we take Deer Creek to Valley Rd and back to the cars. If you want a bit extra you can always ride up Cougar and down Grizzly at the end. It’s optional.
