Nothing spectacular, but the proximity to Denver is appealing when we don't have enough time to drive up to the mountains, or for a snow-free spot during much of the winter. The chance to see bison is a nice perk of the Arsenal, too!
This is one of the best trails in Barr Lake State Park. The boardwalk is a neat area to see birds and walk through giant trees. There are a lot of mosquitos both during high water and in autumn/fall when water recedes, so beware of that.
Nice that it's so close to the city, and great that it's so empty most of the time. Haven't caught any fish in the times we tried, but it's good for a nature walk.
Very beautiful walk and rather easy, definitely one I'll be back to visit
Another nice place to hike, bird-watch and fish in the middle of the city. Free entry and if you hit it at the right time, you'll see bison roaming the plains. I've seen plenty of birds, bison, snakes, prairie dogs and other animals on my hikes.
Nice and quite
Great easy trail for a private walk or run. Very sunny though.
The hike of these trails are precise at easy, flat and graveled. Downside is lack of shade cover. They also offer a 9 mile drive trail with a chance to observe the Bison heard. Visitor center is open Tue-Sun Sunrise to Sunset. No bike trails offered.
Get their early and you'll see buffalo and plenty of white tails. Flowers are beautiful but the trails are easy. Great place to take the kids.
Did not see much wildlife. The area near the ponds/lakes is full of Deer Flies. was bit several times. Bring spray.
