Be careful how you plan your trip during the chat field construction. Many of the trails from Waterton into Chatfield were closed but if you go the other direction you can take the Highline towards Roxborough.

This trail goes way farther than that. The problem is that there is a missing part of the trail close to Titan however I parked close to Lucent and took the high line canal all the way to Hampdem (285) is about 21 mile one way. All gravel, super well kept, couple nice bathrooms with drinking water available and a lot of shade from the old cottonwood trees. Love it!

Good for easy evening biking. Not crowded - just you, nature and horse poops :)

Easy and convenient. Fine for strollers. If you start on Waterton Road, you can go through the pasture gate and possibly see some cows (my kid loves it when we catch them).
