Love this trail! Lots of lakes, cement trail and great views. Decided to do a short ride, but the trail runs all the way to Denver.

I was out on the trail today and it was nice. I took my dog (on leash) and we has a chance to see many mallards and loons flying up the river and floating back down. ot was very nice. I did a police call when I went down by the river, it looks like some people just leave some of their trash. #LeaveItBetterThanYouFoundIt

Nice and easy trail, my pups and I like to go here to jog. There isn't a lot of shade but the trail is never busy.
