​Discover Thornton Community Walks

March 18



With the “Discover Thornton” Community Walkers



On Saturday, March 18, we will be walking along the Niver Creek Trail and we will meet at Pecos Park, which is located on the southeast corner of 96th Avenue and Pecos Street (which is just north of STEM Launch).   To get there, take Thornton Parkway west of I-25 to Pecos Street, turn right/north on Pecos, go to 96th street, turn right/east on 96th Avenue and look for a place to park along the street.   This month's walk will be an out-and-back route that will be 2-6 miles, whatever distance feels right for you on that day.  This trail is primarily paved and has some significant hills on the return route.  We will depart promptly at 9 a.m. so please don't be late.  If you are interested in participating in the program but can't come on March 18, 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   The April event will be held on Saturday, April 22.


The "Discover Thornton" Community Walk program is intended 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 county.  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
