4 stars because of the multitude of trails! I️ have run over a thousand miles just in this park, there are SO many combinations of trails you can run almost any desired distance once you have figured out and mapped them all! It’s generally flat unless you decide to run up the big hill separating the park from the golf course. And you can stay by the river in the lake adding beautiful sights and sounds to your run. I spot a herd of deer or buck regularly❤️ extremely light traffic Monday through Friday mornings. Snow and rains dry quickly. Free parking across C-4 70 at the entrance to Bandimere Speedway. A well trafficked park-and-ride.

Did this mid October. Great trail.. a lot of mountain bikers.. so close to the city of denver. Had no idea this was here! You do need money for parking $10.00. The lake is off the trail but there's benches and even a little floating dock down by it .

Have to pay $10 to get in for the day. Great loop, go early before it gets too hot (little to no shade)

Great 8 mile loop if you park off of Morrison and drop in.

Note: FEE! There's a $10 fee to get in to the park. Nice views of Denver and the mountains, lots of mountain bikes! Fair amount of exposure and not a hike I'd pick for a hot, cloudless day. There are a ton of different trail options and I'm not sure that we successfully stayed on this the whole time.
