Celebrate National Trails Day by hiking or biking in the vicinity of Anthem Community Park/ Siena Reservoir (15663 Sheridan Parkway) on Saturday, June 4 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.! This annual event features a new trail section each year and serves as the Broomfield 100 kick off. Great for all ages and ability levels, please bring sturdy walking shoes, weather appropriate clothing, water, and sunscreen!
The main walking loop is about 2 miles long and will traverse the new Anthem 24 neighborhood trails, climbing the overlook area for some spectacular views before wrapping back around to Anthem Community Park. The biking loop will be about 7 miles and will wind around Siena Reservoir before passing through the Anthem Ranch trails and Open Space to the west. There will also be a small loop in Anthem Community Park for anyone seeking a shorter distance.
National Trails Day is celebrated across the country to heighten awareness of how trails enhance a community’s overall health and quality of life. The Broomfield Trail Adventure is Broomfield’s local celebration of National Trails Day, and kicks off the Broomfield 100 challenge.
Through these events, trail users are encouraged to keep Broomfield’s trails, parks, and open space clean during their walks by picking up trash along the trails. Increased trail use this Spring has led to more trash and litter at some public spaces and trails. Can you combine a day of fun outdoor activity with community service on National Trails Day by picking up trash you may see on the way to help keep the trails and open lands clean and beautiful?
