Bakerville/Loveland Trail


Bakerville-Loveland bike path. 'No Motor Vehicles' and 'Baker/Loveland Trail No. 60' signs posted.

The newly paved trail parallels the interstate, yet you never even notice the highway traffic. The sound of Clear Creek flowing along the trail drowns out the zooming of vehicles, and the trees along the creek bank obstruct the view of civilization. This trail is a section of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail.
