New section of Coal Creek Trail opens, closing the gap between Lafayette, Erie
An additional 2.4 miles of the Coal Creek Trail opened today to pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians closing the gap between Lafayette and Erie.
The new partial trail opening starts at the current terminus of the Rock Creek Regional Trail near 120th Street in Lafayette and ends about a half-mile north of the trail underpass at Colo. 7. – Daily Camera
The remainder of the $ 1.4 million trail project is expected to open later this summer, but in the mean time the north point of the trail will remain closed due to ongoing construction.
The Coal Creek Regional Trail is a 14+ mile soft-surface trail that parallels Coal Creek from S. 66th Street in Superior through Louisville and Lafayette to Vista Parkway in Erie.
The 12-mile Rock Creek Regional Trail is primarily a soft-surface trail that generally parallels Rock Creek from original town Superior, through the Carolyn Holmberg Preserve/Rock Creek Farm Open Space to the Rock Creek and Coal Creek Confluence in Lafayette. Concrete trail portions are located within the Town of Superior.
