What is a Greenway?

For some residents of Longmont and those in surrounding areas, a greenway (extended trail) serves as a sanctuary--an oasis from the noise and pace of everyday life. For others, it serves as an alternative to sharing the streets with motorized vehicles.

Weaving through parks and alongside rivers, creeks, ditches, and lakes, greenways protect neighboring wildlife areas, while also providing opportunities for both environmental and recreational activities. Additionally, greenways serve as maintenance access for storm drainage functions throughout our city.

Lykins Gulch Greenway begins at Golden Ponds Nature Area just south of the St Vrain Greenway bridge and runs to and under Airport Road. This 1-mile long greenway generally follows the historic alignment of the gulch and has been recreated primarily for storm water management. Newly created wetlands border the channel with ponds visible on both sides of the trail. (These ponds are PRIVATE PROPERTY outside of Golden Ponds. There is no public access!)

A boulder crossing of the gulch connects to the gravel trail around the south pond at Golden Ponds. The Lykins Gulch Greenway provides a good pedestrian and bicycling route between the St. Vrain Greenway and Golden Ponds to southwest Longmont.
