Colorado hike Map

Was fun , great for a quick weekend hike ! Was pretty active a lot of bike riders but they were courteous and path was shared .
Great views found a little hidden water fall that was frozen ! Kids loved it would go back again .

Pretty boring at this time of year.

Lovely, easy walk along the creek that passes several small lakes. Some bikes and others dogs, but pretty quiet for a Sunday afternoon. Easy for all abilities and ages.

Nice soft trail to run on near a little creek and a couple lakes.

Very moderate incline and declines over the long trail. Quite populated but not overbearing. Beautiful scenery and overall great weekend hike!

Great trail for a relaxing ride. Constant view of city.

Nice hike close to home. There are foxes/ coyote in the area so please, please keep your dogs on leash. Saw poor Suzie getting cornered by a pack of 4, i was too far to see what exactly they were. Thankfully the owner retrieved the dog with no major issue but it could very well have gone another way.
I spoke with a jeffco ranger who said a female mountain has been known to frequent the area so please keep your furry friends close and also, pack out their poo.

Nice open space, wide path, views of the city.

The views were great and there weren’t too many ppl since I went on a Wednesday but the storms last week made parts of the trail incredibly muddy/slippery... would definitely go again though when the trail is in better shape! Bring sunscreen though since the trail is rarely shaded and know that the Rim Trail portion is closed beginning of February through July (pretty sure those were the dates).

We completed a 3.8 mile loop from North Table Loop to Mesa Top Trail to Cottonwood Canyon Trail. There was a lot of snow on the top of the mesa, but it was a fantastic hike, with some neat views. The mesa's totally exposed (no shade), so it actually makes for a really good winter hike-- I'm sure the sun beating down could be brutal in the middle of the summer.

Very nice little lake and park setting on a level sidewalk. Several places to turn and add some distance to your walk

Love the ducks, rocks, water and natural beauty of environment, especially amongst industrial scenery. My pup and I love the trail (black line) along the river, we do wish it was off-leash allowed though.
light traffic, on-leash, paved and natural trails.

good walkabout. lots of lakes, dogs, bikes, and gold panning. we walked the gravel path which made it a little more enjoyable. definitely worth doing.

Fun trail! Easy to follow, nice for bikers, has a few shady spots with good views. Parking’s available at trailhead. I went feb 9 and the Rim Rock trail along with the east portion of the Mesa Top trail (black diamond part) were closed.

A bit muddy because of the recent snow, but fairly easy over all.

Great trail to get your outdoor exercise done! Trail was mostly clear of ice and where the snow was it wasn’t bad going thru. I was never close to falling, that’s how I judge the trails in the winter.

Not really a hike but a really awesome afternoon walk. There are a lot of mountain bikers and trail runners. Cool views!

Great walk with the dog

Nice for dogs. Great view. A lot of open areas for activities. Not very crowded.

Not great views or hiking. I’d recommend a different trail, looked fun for biking though!

We hit this just right on a Tuesday morning. Left from the trailhead just before 9am. We didn't see anyone at all for the first 2 hours. No bikes either! Also no rattlesnakes. Be sure to take the short excursion to Lichen Peak for cool views. Trailhead has lots of parking + bathrooms. Print out a map to take with you so that you know what all your trail options are; it's fun adding on extra little side trails if it's nice weather.

It was okay. Lots of lakes around.

Busy trail but nice views of downtown and surrounding areas.

This one was rough for me in the beginning. It was very steep, but once you get to the top it’s smooth sailing. I am overweight, so that is why it was more difficult.

Nice ride . Easy for sure .

This is a great little local running trail. Often has surprising moments of beauty.

Good for if you want some fresh air but don't want to drive far from Denver. Took my dog there to stretch his legs after work and I'll definitely be back. Don't be fooled, this a city hike, but you get some decent views and a good workout.

Did this yesterday. Seems like a better biking or running trail rather than hiking. Mostly flat, not very interesting, not great views.
