You have to like industrial/urban trails to appreciate this trail, but it's a nice, smooth paved trail that gives you an appreciation for the industrial underbelly of Denver. We did it on a nice early November day and really enjoyed it--it might be less pleasant on a hot sunny day, as there's not much shade.
