Dark Island Trail

The Dark Island Trail is an 8-mile long hike/bike trail opened in 2007 that extends from just south of Central City to Marquette along a former railroad.   The trail passes through farmland, densely wooded areas, and over a long wooden bridge with spectacular views of the Platte River.  Future plans for extending the trail into the heart of Central City are currently in the works.  For more information, visit the Dark Island Trail Facebook page.

Why I Love Central City!
"Central City is a very nice town.  There are very special people like you.  It is very beautiful watching the stars.  I like the DQ.  Ice cream is not very healthy but it is very good for your tonsils."
