|An Excellent Trail Through Town
The Monarch Spur Trail is a paved, 2 1/2 mile right-of-way for hikers and bicyclists in
Salida. It begins near the banks of the Arkansas River in downtown Salida and heads west. On
a semi-warm day in November 2013, I biked the trail and took a few photos. My better ones are below.
Directions: The trail begins at the intersection of G Street and W. Sackett in Salida. Or, if you need a landmark,
it starts in front of the Salida Steamplant Theater.
The Monarch Spur Trail crosses many streets,where motorists are required to yield to hikers and bicyclists.
Above is a photo of the trail as it crosses First Street.
