Enjoyed nice hike along the South Platte trail. Easy hike. A bit busy with bikes. Paved bike trails and crushed gravel walking/hiking trails. Great views of the mountains and river.

very well maintained trails, with separate hiking n bike trails. Gets busy on the weekend. Nice view of the mountain n river.

Have ridden many times from C470 to downtown. Seamless. Occasionally ice builds up on north side of bridges. (Shadow cast by bridge prevents melting.) Birdwatchers don't care for cyclists. Runners appreciate a heads-up from cyclists before passing.

A paved trail running along the river. Plenty of room for passing walkers and other bikers.
