Thirty years ago, a small group of socially and environmentally conscious Cheyenneites gathered along little Crow Creek, conducted a clean up and planted the seed of the Greater Cheyenne Greenway system.

Today, the Greenway path snakes along Crow and Dry creeks, connecting parks, schools, neighborhoods and commercial centers. It stretches from Four Mile Road at The Pointe subdivision in the north, to Laramie County Community College in the south, from Interstate 25 on the west to the expanding Saddle Ridge subdivision at the city’s eastern boundary. Thirty-seven miles of safe, separated non-motorized paths are now available for recreation, transportation and relaxation.
