In 2005, Clear Creek County finalized the Clear Creek Greenway Master Plan, which was identified as a major development recommendation of the 2030 Clear Creek County Master Plan.

The Clear Creek Greenway Master Plan identifies trail alignments and a Greenway Trail concepts along Clear Creek that link recreation and business attractions and provide future economic development opportunities.  The plan not only identifies possible trail alignments, but provided recommendations for creek access, amenities, design guidelines and implementation strategies for future development.

Trail Design

Every section of trail requires detailed review and has varied design considerations.  Whenever possible, the Greenway Master plan directs us to:

  • Place the trail alongside the creek
  • Build the trail 10 feet wide
  • Use concrete for the surface
  • Achieve ADA compliance
  • Provide access for communities and neighborhoods
