The Sand Creek Regional Greenway, also know as the Sand Creek Trail, is managed by the Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership together with governing bodies from Aurora, Denver and Commerce City. It traverses 14 miles along and over some of the major byways and highways of Northeast Denver/Northwest Aurora, but the entire time, you’ll enjoy wilderness in the city. From the sprawling soccer fields in Aurora to the confluence of the Platte River and the Sand Creek, you’ll pass by two nature centers, an old runway, historic Danish pig farms, metro’s stormwater runoff treatment plant, and even an oil refinery. Yet the entire time along the trail, you’ll always be within sight of hawks, deer, beaver, prairie dogs, dragonflies, and red-winged blackbirds.
