An unencumbered view of the foothills is what’s great about this walk, which takes you across a very large grassland that has been left in its natural state. You’ll travel the 10-foot-wide concrete Van Bibber Creek Trail, which is wheelchair accessible and also great if you’re taking along a child in a stroller. The trail parallels Van Bibber Creek, which runs from west to east across the grassland. Van Bibber Park is rich with historical connections. In 1850 the first recorded gold strike in Colorado was made nearby on Ralston Creek. This preceded the more famous gold strikes on Cherry Creek. At about the same time, homesteaders began moving into the area, settling on land near the creeks and small lakes that dot the region. Others dug irrigation ditches to divert water to irrigate their crops of wheat, corn, hay, and, later, strawberries. By 1870 there were some 500 residents in the agricultural community, named Arvada. The Ralston Creek Stage Road ran nearby and connected Denver with Boulder and Central City. A dirt trail that runs diagonally south from the Van Bibber Creek Trail is known as the Jimmy Go Trail, after one of the prior owners of the park property.
