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.

great commuter bike trail; not much for walking or running.

It's really great except for the occasional hypodermic needle and crazy bums

I bike it most days to work from Logan St. to downtown. It is well maintained, but it's heavily used, isn't really scenic, smells a bit, and has a number of homeless people residing by.

The best way to enjoy the trail is biking the southern section at night on a full moon. It's a real get away then and you have it all to yourself.

Covered about 5 miles and change with my dog along the creek in the southern suburbs. Creek bed was dry, but the houses you pass are pretty. Traffic was moderate but friendly. This trail system feels best for walking, running, and biking.

I rode my bike about 3 miles down this trail. There is some good and some bad. The good - plenty of street art to look at and take pictures and the luxury of having the creek run through the trail is amazing. From time to time you will see fly fishing and kayaking. The bad - plenty of bombs/homeless walking on the adjacent side of the trail closer to downtown Denver, but fades away as you get closer to Chery Creek, CO. Very high traffic of bikers and joggers and simply people in the way. I would only recommend biking on this trail although there are plenty of runners as well.
