A long trail connecting several cities from Golden to Commerce City.

Boring for hiking, too short for biking if you planned to ride on trail not road. The trailhead is confusing, you need to start at the “no trespassing” sign and this is the only way to get down. If you just walking it’s better to park somewhere in Golden then drive to this parking lot.

Nice late afternoon hike with my baby, quiet despite being close to highway. Beautiful scenery and easy access to the creek to dip your hands or feet.

Great walk for anyone. Loved that I was able to use the stroller and still managed to be able to get down to the water.

Beautiful scenery, easy paved walk, took the kids, they rode their bikes and played in the river a little. Great way to spend an afternoon.

Hard to find the entry but once you do it’s very straight forward and kid and pet friendly. The creek is beautiful

I could not find the entry way, so I just hiked down a steep hill. It is so serene down by the creek. Beautiful views, and private areas to have a picnic or hammock out.

Pretty nice walking trail! It looked like it would be fun to go tubing!

Just hiked around Grant Terry Park. Easy trails. Did the upper level above creek. Of course a dead end. Wish they would fix the rest of the upper trail.

Really neat trail that goes through Golden, along the creek. While visiting downtown Golden be sure to check out the old historic buildings (school, house, farm, etc). I've seen a handful of people gold panning, tubing and kayaking in the river. Great for families with strollers.

Next time we will bring friends and tubes! The hike was more of a walk, but it was perfect for our 6 yo.

A good trail for a family walk. Flat and wide.

Done this several times. A paved bike path connecting several cities. Follows the creek most of the way. Dirt paths are closer to the creek.
