Boulder Beer to J. Wells

< 1 mile

The shortest segment is also the easiest. It's just under a mile, and all downhill between Boulder Beer and J. Wells. Just get on the Goose Creek Path and cruise east. You'll pass under Foothills Parkway (take the right fork as you emerge from the underpass). Cross 47th Street, then ride through the first part of a prairie dog town, all on a concrete path. Exit the path into the industrial park on 49th Street, and turn left into the 4th driveway, where you'll see a small sign for J. Wells Brewing.

There are two breweries off this segment of trail. The first is Sanitas Brewing, which is just under half a mile south of the trail. If you take the Sanitas spur, you need to turn right on the paved path before you come to Foothills Parkway. Stay on the path until you come to the stoplight at Pearl Parkway. Cross the intersection south. Turn right and walk West along the sidewalk. Take the first left onto Frontier Avenue. Sanitas is in the metal building in front of you and across the street. The entrance is on the east side of the building.

The second is Vision Quest brewing, and it's only a tenth of a mile off the path. If you take the Vision Quest spur, cross under Foothills Parkway, but take the left fork instead of the right fork. You'll see a metal building directly in front of you -- Vision Quest is in the building immediately north of the one you're looking at. If you don't see a sign for the brewery, ask in the fermentation supply store (which is right next door).

* Okay, we admit it. There are segments of the trail where there are cars. See the Route Overview page for more details.
