Concrete path popular for recreation. Short underpass closure at Monaco Street that can be bypassed at street level using a crosswalk.

A section along the river at the NW corner is not a maintained trail and requires picking over rocks and trees on steep slopes.

I did this in June and it was awesome for a biker.

Decent trail. Best times to ride are midday or early in the morning. There is some construction around Quebec. The dust is horrible.

This is a standard 2 mile easy loop for a walk or bike ride but for the more adventurous folks every little dirt path along the way will lead the out to a gorgeous little hidden pond or very cool rivers & a cute little rock "amphitheatre". This is one of my favorite new places to spend a couple of hours in complete tranquility & I'll definitely be back!

I ran the upper part of this trail near downtown. Great morning run. There are parts of this trail for all activities such as biking, skating, running, walking. Other parts of the trail divide into separate paths. One is for pedestrians only, such as runners or walkers. The other path is for wheeled activities such as biking and skating. Just be aware of what path you are on as they are clearly marked. While running on the multi-use part I just remained near the outer edge of the path and did not have any problems with the bikers as they would ride around me.

Decent trail for running. As with many urban trails, there is no shortage of pompous bike riders that feel us runners are an obstacle they have to deal with on THEIR trail...

Great for running and biking . Love the murals on the walls

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.

Great Trail.

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.
