Photos of Cherry Creek State Park Nature Trips Trails

Beautiful setting for sure but difficult to navigate. There is no single trail that goes around the lake but several shorter trails that cut and pasted together get your around.. which would be fine if there were signs. I stopped at two posted maps along the way but neither indicated "You Are Here", so that wasn't terribly helpful. I ended up making it around the reservoir without having to back track but did have to weave through several parking lots and spend a portion on the road. By doing this I accidentally trimmed my expected loop from 8.8 miles to 6.5. All in all, great space for a leisurely stroll or once you learn your way around but a little tricky if you're just hoping focus on your run and get in a nice nearly 9 mile loop.
