Griffin Athletic Fields

Griffin Athletic Fields TrailWe checked out the Griffin Athletic Fields and trail on Steamboat. Imagine playing baseball, soccer or football in a clearing in the woods. That’s what it felt like. I had the “build it and they will come” feeling.

There are three fields and a small playground with playground equipment. The fields have a large paved lot and there is a portable toilet. Dogs are permitted on a leash and dog parents need to pick up after their dogs. There are several signs reminding people that dog access is a privilege, not a right. So please, keep your dogs leashed and pick up after them.

There’s a trail through the woods that is quite beautiful and we enjoyed a quick hike. We will go back and try to cover more ground next time. If it weren’t for the sound of traffic you would forget where you were.
