This trail will eventually extend 3 miles from Huron Street at 150th Avenue east to I-25 and then south to the Big Dry Creek Trail. This trail will provide access to many existing and planned businesses within the I-25 corridor. Pedestrian trail underpasses for the I-25 Trail have already been constructed under Huron Street at 150th Avenue, 144th Avenue just west of I-25 and 136th Avenue just west of I-25.
The trail has already been built in two segments. The northernmost portion of the trail exists within The Orchard Town Center project and is routed through an attractive wetland and detention pond along Shay Ditch. In the future, a trail loop will be built around the detention pond. The huge Lifetime Fitness facility is very visible from the trail.
The central trail segment exists to the north and south of 136th Avenue abutting the Lowes and Wal-Mart developments. The trail passes under 136th Avenue and abuts the storm water detention ponds that serve these developments.
A new portion of the trail will open in 2010 between the north side of Lowes and 140th Avenue. This trail will be routed along the western shore of the newly built 5-acre Orchard Lake. The I-25 trail will intersect the McKay Creek Trail, which leads to the McKay Lake Open Space about one mile to the west.
