Description

Fairmount Trail begins at 64th Ave where Ralston Creek Trail ends and heads south along an irrigation canal towards North Table Mountain and Clear Creek. Along the way, it passes through Long Lake Regional Park with its recreational fields and bathrooms, then skirts the boundary between neighborhoods and North Table Mountain at Lithic Trail, finally dropping down to the North Table Mountain East Access lot at Easley Road.

From there you can ride a fast mile south on Easley Road to 44th Ave to access Clear Creek Trail, or you can cross Easley. Riding the trail south from the parking lot will put you on the bike path along Salvia Street continuing to the bike path west on 44th to connect to Clear Creek Trail. Heading north on the path from the parking lot will take you to Golden Bike Park and New Terrain Brewing.
