If you’re into hobo watching this is the place for you! You can get a decent peep show here if you know what I mean(wink). Make sure to stop by around 8 o’clock to catch the homeless gentlemen masturbating into the sunset! Would give three stars, but too many mosquitos.

nice trail but the homeless population is depressing

Be careful walking. I’ve seen lots of spent needles on this trail. It’s a disguised area of the city that people can hide easily and shoot up.

This trail is not suited for hiking. We were on it today for about 30 minutes and then got off. It is a training course for serious bike riders. To be fair most were very courteous as they flew past us in their spandex and bikes that probably cost more than my car. “On your left” then, past us in a blur. Only one A....... who shouted something at me as he went past. I read some reviews that say this trail is suitable for kids. I vigorously disagree.

Beautiful for fast road running workout

A lot people both running and biking, largely millennials/30-somethings, and has the feel of a big city trail that is used primarily for after work runs and bicycle commutes. Can be sketchy in parts if you linger. Pretty sure we saw a guy doing drugs behind a tree.

Road this trail as a novice. Beautiful trail with a variety of terrain to see, and a nice view of Denver waiting for you at the reservoir. Homeless people do tend to set up camp closer to the downtown Denver area. But, once you make your way further the trail is quiet. I went during the week so I can imagine it would get crowded on the weekend. Happy travels!

Easy trail- we didn’t it with little electric scooters from the convention center to the REI. Round trip takes less than 30 minutes on scooter, perhaps that distance would take 1-2 hours on foot.

One of my most frequented runs. Good flow of people

It’s a great trail, but very busy on the weekends and not a lot of shade in the beginning of the day

What an awesome trail. Great ride and beautiful change of scenery. Entered by Holiday Inn Denver-Cherry Creek rode to the lake, around and back. Approximately 24 miles. Nice, wide path and not much traffic around the lake on a Friday late morning.

With Boba- no shade but nice paved walkway for miles and miles - directions were unclear so park at a meter and bring water

My wife and I have biked this trail a few times and we love it. It really gives you a good and different perspective of Denver. The trail is fairly flat and there is a lot of tree coverage so it doesn't get too hot in the summer. There's also plenty of places to stop and get a bite to eat, drink or just take a rest. The only bad thing about this trail is that once you get close to downtown you start seeing a lot of homeless people near the trail and some are using drugs.

Great area to run. 8 miles around the park Starting at the East entrance. There are a lot of trails in the park and connecting to the park for the long runs. If you're going for a long run or a short run you can find it here. It is also very scenic and has wild life.

Great day, easy transition from farmland to mountains. Helped acclimate to higher elevation. Had two knee surgeries, trail was easy on knees. Loved the view.

Pretty area right downtown for some nature time . One side is for pedestrians and other is for biking and roller blading . All paved . Pretty, clean creek and dog friendly ! Walk alongside the city skyline!

Great trail for running. Mostly flat and below street level so it stays relatively cool. Lots of bikes and runners on the weekend.

Nice ride, started downtown and went to the 11 mile marker. Nice scenery of the creek/river, other than that not too much going on. There's a mall area in Glendale, ate lunch at the whole foods there. A few nice stops along the way, and the whole thing is paved and easy to follow. You can feel the slight uphill going east, but it's not bad at all.
