Paving the way for more regional trail connections

12 Harvest Trailsmall

Improving trail connectivity across the County is a priority at Arapahoe County Open Spaces. We want to make it as seamless and safe as possible for trail users to recreate in a variety of ways within the County.

Harvest Trail—a new (2020) multi-use, off-street connector trail from Gun Club Road to Harvest Road in southeast Aurora—marks exciting progress for trail connectivity to the E-470 corridor. 

The 1.2-mile concrete trail with a crusher-fine shoulder provides a connection to four existing trails and sidewalks in the adjacent Toll Gate Crossing community. It also connects to trails at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds and Park on the east side, where walkers, bikers, and equestrians alike can enjoy views of the Front Range and Eastern Plains from the park’s gently-sloping, winding trails. 

The west end of the Harvest Trail at Gun Club Road dead ends currently, but as part of the Quincy/Gun Club Road Intersection Improvements Project underway, off-street trails and a new underpass under Gun Club Road will connect trail users to the Quincy Ave Trail and High Plains Trail along E-470. Anticipated project completion date is May 2021. 

Projects like these are made possible by the voter-supported, quarter-cent Arapahoe County Open Space Sales and Use Tax.
