1.5 mile Mayhoffer-Singletree Trail now connects the Marshall Mesa to the Singletree Trail in Superior.
As of mid-November the new Mayhoffer-Singletree connector trail is open adding 1.5 miles of multi-use trail that extends from the City of Boulder’s Cowdrey Draw Trail east of Marshall Mesa at the northwest to the Town of Superior’s Mayhoffer-Singletree at the southeast just west of Super Target.
The well groomed trail ambles through the natural grasslands of Boulder County open space offering views of the eastern valley and the front range peaking over the rolling hills to the west. With less than a hundred feet of gain, the trail is easy and fun to navigate on bike or foot.
This trail extension completes a 13-mile loop trail that includes the City of Boulder’s Greenbelt Plateau, Community Ditch Trail and Cowdrey Draw trails that now connect to the Town of Superior and Boulder County trails. The project area includes the former route of the Morgul-Bismarck Loop of the Coors International Bicycle Classic from the 1980s and in which some mountain bikers have aptly named the Dirty Bismarck.
It appears that by Spring 2011 the city will be completing a soft-surface, multi-use trail that will traverse county and town of Superior open space properties connecting the Mayhoffer/Singletree Trail to the Coalton Trail, bypassing the need to run or ride on busy McCaslin Drive. Completion of this trail connects five miles of contiguous trail from original town Superior to Flatiron Crossing Drive.

According to the City of Boulder, this new section of trail also provides a highly anticipated link to the City of Boulder Marshall-Mesa trails, the Rock Creek Trail system and the Coal Creek Trail system. This trail is located within a unique portion of the City of Boulder and Boulder County’s open space properties that include the largest natural grassland plant community in Boulder County.
