Due to explosive growth in the area in recent years, Denver Parks and Rec has been hard at work installing a soft surface trail at Sloans Lake Park. The trail is being added to accommodate the heavy usage of the existing 8-foot wide hard surface path. The new 4-foot wide soft surface path is perfect for runners and walkers that enjoy a lower impact experience. My favorite thing about Sloan’s Lake is the city view from the west side of the park and the mountains views from the east side. The new soft surface trail runs the perimeter of the park, thus preserving the amazing views.
Construction of the trail began in November of 2018 and large parts are ready for use. What a great way to enjoy the Colorado sunshine while getting your steps in!
