The first phase of the new 104th Street Trail will open for public use on Friday, May 19. This new trail provides an important north-south connection between the heavily used Coal Creek and Rock Creek Regional trails. 

Traveling through the open space along 104th Street, the 1.8-mile multi-use trail connects Aquarius Open Space in Louisville to the Carolyn Holmberg Preserve, ending just south of the Northwest Parkway Overpass. The trail then merges into a shared road connection which continues to Stearns Lake Trailhead. At a future date, phase two of the project will convert the shared road segment into a trail.

The 104th Street Trail Project is a collaboration between Louisville, Lafayette, and Boulder County, aimed at improving regional trail systems to meet the community's expanding recreational needs. The multi-use trail features a combination of soft surface and concrete with pedestrian crossings at major intersections to improve access and safety.

With nearly 100,000 users annually on the Coal Creek and Rock Creek Trails, this new connection offers commuters and outdoor enthusiasts better access to major job centers, regional transit lines, trails, and open spaces in multiple communities, including the popular Carolyn Holmberg Preserve at Rock Creek Farm. The public is invited to explore and enjoy the new 104th Street Trail connection for day and night use.

This $2.3 Million project was split between the cities of Louisville, Lafayette, and Boulder County. Grant funding in the amount of $475,000 from CDOT was used to reduce the split for each agency.
