Attraction details
Owner description: The Yampa River Core Trail is a seven mile, non-motorized multi-use trail that follows the meandering Yampa River from Dougherty Road through downtown Steamboat Springs to Bear River Park. Groves of cottonwood trees, excellent fishing, scenic overlook benches, and lovely picnic spots make this trail a great place for a leisurely stroll or a commuter route through town. Additionally, there are many parks and playgrounds and more miles of trail that can be accessed off of the Core Trail.

“Great place for a scenic walk!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Sidewalk the whole way, along the river. Passed by the botanical gardens and walked through, which is beautiful and free. Goes on for miles, really enjoyable.

“Perfect Trail Into Downtown”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Chances are if your staying in Steamboat that you are close to the Yampa River Core Trail which runs through downtown Steamboat. If so, take it. It is a perfect trail with plenty of spots to watch the river. It was 3 miles to downtown for us via the trail and it took right over 2 hours because we stopped by the free botanical gardens. We were walking along side the river for the majority of the hike, very peaceful. Enjoy!

“Excellent Trail for Biking/Walking”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

What an excellent trail along the Yampa River! Great for all ages - for walking, jogging or biking. The wide sidewalk and flat terrain makes for an easy trip. There are great places to stop along the way to rest or just enjoy the scenery. And a tour of the Botanic Park is a must - just lovely!

“Great level trail through Steamboat”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

This trail is awesome with gentle slopes but mostly flat that runs along the Yampa River. You pass the Botanical Gardens that is free as well. Enjoyable as well as getting some exercise.
