Standley Lake Library Trailhead

The City is building a trailhead at Standley Lake Library to connect to the Rocky Mountain Greenway
The City of Arvada is working in collaboration with Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) on a project to build the only trailhead serving the Rocky Mountain Greenway (RMG) within the City of Arvada on JCPL property. The RMG vision is a system of uninterrupted trails linking the three Metro area National Wildlife Refuges (NWRs): Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR, Two Ponds NWR, and Rocky Flats NWR. Beyond the Metro area, the broader vision is to extend this Greenway Trail to Rocky Mountain National Park. When complete, the Greenway Trail will link thousands of acres of public lands together. The trailhead in Arvada will provide universal access from Standley Lake Library, existing parking area, and Kipling Street to a central public trailhead. From this hub, multiple new ADA-accessible routes will lead to the RMG.
