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.

Very easy and busy sidewalk trail weaves in and out of parks throughout cherry creek. Lands between my house and job so often times I use it. Perfect little walk. Clean and well maintained.
