Celebrate National Trails Day by hiking or biking in the vicinity of Spano Park (17715 Huron St) on Saturday, June 3 from 8-10 a.m.! This annual event features a new trail section each year and serves as the Broomfield 100 kick off. Great for all ages and ability levels, please bring sturdy walking shoes, weather appropriate clothing, water, and sunscreen!
The main walking loop is about 2 miles long and will traverse new Palisade Park trails, featuring Spano Park, the Harmer Open Space, and the new trailhead off of 176th Avenue. The biking loop will be about 5 miles and will wind around the southern Palisade neighborhoods traversing the North Star Trail with clear mountain views to the west, before passing Vista Park and the historic Weldford Barn. There will also be a smaller loop near Spano Park for anyone seeking a shorter distance.
National Trails Day is celebrated across the country to heighten awareness of how trails enhance a community’s overall health and quality of life. The Broomfield Trail Adventure is Broomfield’s local celebration of National Trails Day, and kicks off the Broomfield 100 challenge.
Through these events, trail users are encouraged to keep Broomfield’s trails, parks, and open space clean during their walks by picking up trash along the trails. Increased trail use this Spring has led to more trash and litter at some public spaces and trails. Combine a day of fun outdoor activity with community service on National Trails Day by picking up trash you may see on the way to help keep the trails and open lands clean and beautiful.
