Cottonwood Creek Trail is proposed to connect to the following trails and parks:
Pikes Peak Greenway
Skyline Trail
Homestead Trail
Sand Creek Trail
Cottonwood Creek Park

Project Status: Under construction
Engineering for this challenging project of connecting the Pikes Peak Greenway with Academy Blvd is 95% complete. Right-of-way and trail easements have been obtained for all but one remaining parcel. Funding for the construction of this segment of the Cottonwood Trail should coincide with the completion of the Woodmen Interchange and Bridge Replacement Project along I-25. Through coordination with C-DOT, the pedestrian underpass under I-25 at Cottonwood Creek was completed in early 2004 as part of the Woodmen Road Interchange project.

The connection of Rangewood Road to Woodmen Road will provide an important connection between the rapidly developing Woodmen corridor with the Cottonwood Creek Community Park and new Northeast Recreation Center.
