This paved trail is 22 miles long and is actually 5 different trail sections that circle the entire city of Loveland Colorado. It passes through at least 7 parks and open space areas as well as Boyd Lake State Park. One very small section on the north end is not finished and one section on the south end is gravel at the time of this post. This path is mostly very wide and easy to follow. It goes from twisty tree covered riverside areas to wide open straight line exposed areas. The signage along the route is excellent and easy to follow. This path also goes by 2 different skate parks.

Access Info

Numerous vehicle parking areas. See links.
