I adore this park. The views are spectacular and it's very accessible. There's a cute little pond off the Jimmy Go trail where you can watch the ducks, but beware of snakes in the grass in the Spring (only saw garter snakes). This park is one of the very few things I miss dearly about living in the Arvada area.

This is my go-to trail when I need an escape. It’s close to my house and the view of the mountains is great! Unfortunately the trail doesn’t go around the entire lake; I always park at the parking lot on Simms and 86th and when you get to the West side of the lake there’s a fence and you have to turn around.

This trail is a causal walking trail, great for beginners and families and dogs. There are a few different paths to take with lots of cute little prairie dogs, runners, bikers, people fishing and sometimes horseback riders on the trail. If you walk next to the water there are bugs.

Convenient from Arvada and surrounding areas. Very easy walk around Standley Lake with views of the Foothills. There are also prairie dogs to see right by the parking lot and throughout the trail.

It’s okay if you don’t mind mc-mansions and golf courses.

Nice open space, wide path, views of the city.

This was closer to a 2-3 mile loop. I prefer not to run on paved surfaces and ran in the grass along the side of the sidewalk which was pretty frequented by horses so I had to really watch where I stepped. There was full sun so this would be a good place for a quick outing on a cooler day and really was probably best for a quick walk.

Great trail run. Definitely not 5.4 miles. Confirmed this with a run today along with the park trail map (more like 2-3). Beautiful open space in the full sun, with views of the mountains.

Lots of bird poop, but nice path!

Easy and quick just outside of Arvada. No wildlife sightings today. The trail runs near 80th so you hear and see cars the entire hike. Also you can hear the construction of the new housing development going in.

for beautiful walk along burbling creek, and pleasant views, great for strollers etc, just lovely

nice paved trail. some navigation through a neighborhood.

frequently walked about 30 minutes. nice view of front range.

Scenery ok. Surface for hikers is primarily cement. Can see this trail as terrific for bikers.
