Mary Carter Greenway Trail
Explore the natural oasis of the South Platte Park via this 8-mile trail that runs along the South Platte River from Chatfield State Park north to the nearby City of Englewood. The path traverses 880 acres of open space and provides access to Littleton hot spots such as Aspen Grove, Breckenridge Brewery, Carboy Winery, Angelo’s Taverna, Hudson Gardens, Platte River Bar & Grill, Littleton Tennis & Golf, The Pint Room, and Downtown Littleton. Along the way, find whitewater boating facilities, rest areas, interpretive sites, and award-winning landscaping.
The trail links to Lee Gulch, which allows visitors to traverse Littleton east to west and pick up the High Line Canal trail. For safety, this busy trail features a crushed stone path for pedestrians and wheelchair users along with a paved path for bikers. Speaking of bikers, rent a bike along the path at The Bikery and limit speed to 15 mph. The trail is named for Mary Carter who led the South Suburban Park Foundation in the 1980s.
