On this segment, we’ll meander along the historic Delaney Farms, home to the Denver Urban Gardens CSA production fields, crossing both the East and West Toll Gate Creeks. We’ll pass by the Aurora Government Center and continue under I-225 through Central Aurora with a short detour to Del Mar Park to see the Thunder Tree location, past the historic Smith House, finishing at the north edge of Expo Park. We’ll discuss the relationship each neighborhood has with the Canal and its trail as we feel how the mood on the trail changes through this area.
