[ARCHIVED] Existing trails play key supporting role in light of regional trail closures

Trail on Rothman OS

Fortunately folks looking for trail outlets won't have to travel far to get their physical activity needs met. Lafayette is host to several trail systems that are available to the public for use. While they may be better known by their nearby neighbors, these community trails will certainly fill in for the Coal Creek and Rock Creek regional trails which are closed until further notice due to safety and public health conditions.

See below for a short list of some soft-surface trails that you can explore.

* Rothman Open Space - 2.7 miles; trailhead access at the eastern end of Lucerne Drive or City Park Complex (behind Lafayette Skatepark); this system connects to additional trail miles on Kneebone Open Space which has a 1 mile loop and toward the Great Bark Dog Park

* Waneka Lake Park - 1.3 mile loop; various access points off Caria Drive; this network links to additional trail miles on Waneka Landing Open Space and Powerline Trail

*Powerline Trail - 0.8 mile trail; various access points off Caria Drive; this trail connects to Waneka Lake Park, Hecla Lake in Louisville, and Angevine Middle School

Parks, Open Space and Trails maps can be obtained at the Lafayette Library, Indian Peaks Golf Course, and City Hall. Or, you can call (303) 665-5588 x3610 to have one mailed to you.
