Good for work runs. Less stop and go than street running and usually cleared after snow

A lot people both running and biking, largely millennials/30-somethings, and has the feel of a big city trail that is used primarily for after work runs and bicycle commutes. Can be sketchy in parts if you linger. Pretty sure we saw a guy doing drugs behind a tree.

With Boba- no shade but nice paved walkway for miles and miles - directions were unclear so park at a meter and bring water

This trail runs right by my office, so it's a great trail to walk during my lunch break. It's easy, cleared, busy enough I feel safe and quiet enough that it's calming. I've started using it on the daily. Great trail!

Nice to bike or hike this trail along the South Platte. Can't rate it any higher because you're in town. Regardless, it's still worth doing.

Nice trail in downtown Denver. Fun people all over. I needed a map so bad. Intersect with another big trail system - cherry something. Many confusing shoots and bridges. Water was beautiful and cooling

Love this trail. It's a nice walk- even though you're in the city, it's peaceful and lovely.
