The Broomfield 100 promotes outdoor exercise, healthy living, and the opportunity to learn about Broomfield and its trail system. To complete a loop or trail, it is not necessary to cover the entire mileage of a trail, but rather to visit the site, learn the trail connections, and enjoy the area! Share the wonders of the great outdoors with those you love and ‘check in’ on the Online Passport or post to social media with the hashtag #WeAreBroomfield to win prizes. Learn about new trails, have fun, and be healthy at the same time!
Participate in the Broomfield 100 using the Broomfield 100 Online passport below or a physical passport. Plan your visit to each trail, find areas of interest along the way, and add your name to the community guestbook to share your trail adventures even when physical distancing.
2022 Broomfield Trail Adventure
Saturday, June 4 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
Celebrate National Trails Day by hiking or biking in the vicinity of Anthem Community Park/ Siena Reservoir (15663 Sheridan Parkway) on Saturday, June 4 from 7:30 to 9:30 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 the new Anthem 24 neighborhood trails, climbing the overlook area for some spectacular views before wrapping back around to Anthem Community Park. The biking loop will be about 7 miles and will wind around Siena Reservoir before passing through the Anthem Ranch trails and Open Space to the west. There will also be a small loop in Anthem Community 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. Can you 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?
