Katoski Greenbelt Soft Trails

Mostly narrow double track, Greenbelt trail runs along the Black Hawk Creek from Ansborough Avenue to south of Schaulis Road. There are several spurs and loops off of the main Greenbelt trail. Trails are void of major elevation changes.

You will see bikers, walkers (with and without dogs), runners and horse riders on parts of the trail most months. If snow is on the ground you may see cross country skiers, fat tire bike riders or snow shoers.

The north end of the trail starts on the creek side of dike at the Pat Bowlsby Off-Leash Dog Park parking lot where there is a drinking fountain. There are also parking lots on the North and South sides of Ridgeway Ave, Ranchero Rd, and Shaulis Rd.
