Lakewood has a large number of parks and trails for a small city of 150,000. We’ve put together a 13.5 mile route to use as a guideline — overall, this connects several small parks and four reservoirs, all of which have trails alongside them. The route is a mix of paved and gravel paths, and some on-road (safe w/sidewalks) sections. Choose a section of your choice.
The heart of the route is Belmar Park in central Lakewood, with its 2 miles of trails, a small lake, and other facilities. Then take W. Belmar Ave. west to connect to Addenbrooke Park. Between these two parks it’s a 6-7 mile run!
Next is the ‘Reservoirs’ Section. From the south end of Addenbrooke Park, it’s 1 mile on a path & W. Mississippi Ave. to connect to the East Reservoir (1 mile loop trail), Main Reservoir (1.1 mile loop trail), Smith Reservoir (0.5 mile trail on the east side), Kendrick Lake Park (1.1 mile trail around the lake), Jewell Park, and Sanctuary/Green Gables Park.
- Full loop is 13.4 miles (21.6 km) -- choose a section!
- 369 feet (112m) over full loop
- Belmar Park is a central starting point. Or, other spot on route
