There is a mandatory takeout at Placer Flats — located on US 6 at Mile Post 260.5. The takeout at Cannonball Flats is also closed for the season. The creek is closed and impassable at this point. An update will be distributed when or if the mandatory takeout is lifted.
The Project Team would like to thank all the rafting companies and private individuals who utilize this part of Clear Creek, for their cooperation during construction. Crews are still working on the general construction of this trail.
In January 2014, construction began on additions to the Peaks to Plains Trail, which runs alongside US 6 through Clear Creek and Jefferson counties. Once completed, the project will provide new and expanded recreational opportunities for the cycling, hiking, angling, kayaking, climbing and prospecting communities, as well as other outdoor enthusiasts.
The Peaks to Plains trail will include the following:
• 3 miles of new concrete trail
• Three bridges crossing Clear Creek
• At least eight improved water access points
• Additional parking spaces at the Oxbow Parcel trailhead in Clear Creek County
If you have any questions, please contact the Public Information Team for the Peaks to Plains Trail project.
A map of the takeout and project zone are forthcoming.
