The Littleton Community Trail provides significant connections to four regional trails, the Mary Carter Greenway, the Lee Gulch Trail, the Big Dry Creek Trail, and the Highline Canal. These connections are significant because they further extend trail connections to larger, metro-wide trails via the Mary Carter Greenway/Platte River Trail, the Highline Canal and C-470Trails.
Truly an urban trail, the Littleton Community Trail links together vital connections (trails, paths, sidewalks) to multiple neighborhood parks, three regional multi-use parks (Belleview Park, 62-acres; Cornerstone Regional Park, 66-acres; Progress Park, 22-acres), and local parks including Sterne, Geneva, Slaughterhouse and Lower Ridgewood Parks. This project benefits generations to come. In addition, future trail links from this spine provides safe and convenient access to the Mary Carter Greenway, Hudson Gardens (natural botanic park), South Platte Park (600-acre wildlife/nature preserve), the Carson Nature Center, Chatfield State Park, and numerous other destinations via the Lee Gulch Trail connection.
The trail provides a continuous path with valuable connections to community amenities including the Buck/Senior Recreation Center, the Littleton Art Depot, Historic Littleton Main Street retail area, the Littleton Municipal Court House, RTD Light Rail Station, Littleton Cemetery, Sterne Park and Rose Gardens, Pea Patch Community Gardens, Lower Ridge Park, the Center for the Blind, and the Village Early Education Center.
