Wrapping up the Evergreen Lake North Trail

The Evergreen Lake North Trail is open for use after seven years of planning and seven months of construction. Final details will be completed this fall, and we anticipate that the project will be closed out by December 2023. On October 24, the community joined EPRD and its project partners to cut the ribbon on the Evergreen Lake North Trail. Thank you to the entire Evergreen community for your patience and support!

The Evergreen Lake North Trail Project was created in response to the Spring 2016 closure of the trail along State Highway 74 on the north side of Evergreen Lake between Upper Bear Creek Road and Evergreen Dam.  The trail system is located on property owned by the City and County of Denver (CCD) and managed by the Evergreen Park & Recreation District (EPRD).  The project's goal is to work with the community, stakeholders, and funders to develop a long-term solution for the Evergreen Lake North Trail to improve safety, accessibility, and connectivity in our community. Improvements to this trail segment were recommended by the 2015 Evergreen Trails Master Plan.
