The trail is pretty easy, 1.2 miles around the lake. There are a couple different forks in the path so you could get creative and make a longer loop for yourself if desired. The park is located in the middle of a neighborhood so it is very nice and quiet here. Good mountain views while going around the trail.

I came here to take a jog but also noticed there were people fishing. Several times while walking around the lake I saw fish jump out of the water and make a big splash.

Gave 3 stars because it was very nice but also very simple. Also this is the first trail I've visited in Denver so I don't have much to compare it too.

Nice walk to take the little kids on. It's paved, so not a hike. There are little trails, but again, super easy and not something I would consider a hike or trail running.

It's a beautiful and peaceful trail for riding your bike or walking your dog.

Trail has 2 parking lots, one on Indiana (west side of park) and one on Ward Rd (east side/middle of park by the big church). I usually park on the Indiana side (can get muddy in the rain). There are horses training near the parking lot so I enjoy seeing them and can hit the whole loop if I start there. You can go past Ward road all the way to Oak and it makes for a good bike ride as well. On the side of the sidewalk there are some places where there is a little trail so I suppose you could "trail run" and one called the Jimmy Go Loop, which is more trail like, but this is NOT a hike by any means.

Good ride for stretching your legs at the beginning of a season. I like the bit around the Reservoir, fun/mod tough climb and fast downhill. There is a good bike path down 64th back towards the east.

Nice. Fairly level. Good for fitness beginners! Fun to watch the Ducks and Geese with their babies in spring!

Beautiful walk. Paved and clear paths, beautiful tree line in front of houses. Simple walk, first walk I did carrying my then two month old.

five stars for what this is. nicely paved walking trail in a beautiful area surrounded by wild life and green space. great for a walk/run when you don't want to go too far out of town but want to feel like you are with nature. you can choose to veer off the trail onto a dirt trail for variety of a slight challenge.
