Trail Detours

Orange bike and pedestrian trail detour sign.

Denver Parks and Recreation is constantly working to improve the over 100 miles of trails in the parks system. When doing improvements there may be temporary detours due to construction. We are committed to providing the safest detours available for the shortest amount of time necessary in order to minimize impacts to users.  For additional information related to current or planned detours, please refer to the project list below. (Under Construction, Available Soon)

Although we make every attempt to keep the public informed about the status of our multi-use trails, there are times when they must be closed immediately and may not be noted on this page.  Please be aware of unforeseen conditions due to weather or other unexpected events and be prepared to use alternate routes if necessary.
