Sand Creek Greenway Segment 2

Segment 2 of the Sand Creek Trail starts at Star K Ranch, Morrison Nature Center. Here, you can often catch herds of whitetail and mule deer hanging out in the thickets and the cottonwoods along Sand Creek. As you work your way west out of Star K, keep your eyes open for signs of beavers! You will exit Aurora, and arrive in Denver after crossing under Peoria Street. The Bluff Lake Nature Center is an urban wildlife refuge and outdoor classroom which brings us to the end of this segment.
