This is one of the best loops in Riverside Park that DOESN'T follow the river closely. Though the river is arguably the best feature of the park, this trail manages to provide constant engagement and interest without interacting much with the water. The climbs, views and variation in landscape are quite captivating.

Didn't see a single person the hour I spent here. Some pretty neat views from some ridge points and in the dry river bed. Mostly followed the trail but wandered off here and there. Pretty easy hike, shoes were sandy with burrs after this trail, probably mostly from hiking the river bed and off the trail. Is right next to the road which was disappointing. Well maintained and clean though.

Not too bad. Nice view. Trial is very steep and rocky in places. Couldn't find the trail at one point. The last half mile is paved centennial trail.

K first of all this is not just a bike trail. saw more hikers on it than bikers. this was mu first time on this loop so these insights are "what I'd do different" not definitive guide for riding this.

If you are riding this trail the #25 is your main route. There are side trails that seem to loop back into #25.

When I do this loop again I won't park at the trail head lot that Google takes you to. There is a pull off down the hill on the highway before you turn off on the dirt road to the parking lot. This pull off is right next to the where the #25 meets the highway. After this ride I know it will be much better to ride the trail the reverse of what I did. That is riding straight west as opposed to south dropping down into the river bed first. still don't know if the right thing was to take the paved traildown from the state park parking lot at the top. may there's someone out there that can post about that.

All in all a really fun ride.
