Even with Santa Fe Blvd so close, it feels miles away

very well maintained trails, with separate hiking n bike trails. Gets busy on the weekend. Nice view of the mountain n river.

Have ridden many times from C470 to downtown. Seamless. Occasionally ice builds up on north side of bridges. (Shadow cast by bridge prevents melting.) Birdwatchers don't care for cyclists. Runners appreciate a heads-up from cyclists before passing.

A paved trail running along the river. Plenty of room for passing walkers and other bikers.

Great for bikes and a number of walking trails along the river.

It's a good trail. I went at 6:30 am and there was still a lot of other people. Mostly bikes. I found some dirt trails that stay along the river. I suggest doing the same to avoid bike traffic. I was the only person on the dirt trails so it was very pleasant and quiet.

Nice long hike by the South Pratte river. Rapids, rivers, nature. Heavily populated by the communities surrounding it, so on a nice day expect a million bikers and dogs.

Great trail system that that entire family can enjoy. Flat paved trails running along the South Platte and surrounding lakes is a great place to visit right near the heart of Denver.
