Features
In early 2016, CDOT completed construction of a bridge over the trail and trailhead access from the eastbound lane of Arapahoe Road. With a $1.3 million  investment from Arapahoe County Open Spaces, trailhead construction began shortly after and offers parking, restrooms, two covered picnic shelters, bicycle repair station, a children’s natural play area, landscaping and enhanced trail connections.

The regional trailhead fills a strategic gap in the County's trail network by expanding connectivity to Cherry Creek State Park and serving several nearby communities including Aurora, Centennial and Foxfield.

History
Arapahoe County bought the trailhead using dedicated open space funds in December 2010.

This is just one of the projects pursued by the Cherry Creek Basin Working Group. With 20 jurisdictions from Denver to Douglas County, the group is working to beautify and enhance the regional trail corridor by adding open space buffers and closing gaps in the Cherry Creek Regional Trail which also is a component of the Front Range Trail.
