Homestead Hills Park to Springvale Park & Back Again


On Saturday, May 13, we will do a north loop that will start up on the hill at Homestead Hills Park and we will follow neighborhood trails that will take us to Springvale Park and then back again.   We will meet at Homestead Hills Park, and we will depart promptly at 9 a.m.  To get to Homestead Hills Park, go north on Colorado to 140th Avenue, (last right hand turn before Colorado narrows down to 2 lanes).  Go straight up the hill (gravel road) and turn into the parking lot at the top of the hill.  This month’s walk will be another big loop route that can be 2-6 miles in duration – so everyone can go the distance that feels right for them.  This trail will be primarily concrete and it will include some hills.   Please remember the sunscreen, dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes.  If you are interested in participating in the program but can’t come on May 13th, please make sure we have your e-mail address and we will keep you apprised of the dates, locations and distances for upcoming walks.  Please send those inquiries to   

This is a monthly fitness program designed to help you develop or maintain a consistent fitness program. City of Thornton Recreation Staff will lead the walk each month. These treks will be of varying distances and will explore the many different trails around the community. Come alone or bring your spouse, your neighbors, your children and/or your dog. This is an opportunity to pursue your fitness goals, meet some new people and enjoy the trails of Thornton. These walks are free and open to anyone who can physically complete the distance. These are “no frills” events, so bring what you will need (water bottle, pet pick-up bags, etc.) for the duration of each month’s walk.
