We love the off leash dog park!

I have my own kayak and kayaking is the only way to do it!! You can get away from the beach crowd and noise and go to east side. I’ve seen blue heron and other birds. It’s beautifully quiet.

I love the Cherry Creek Ecological Park. It’s a beautiful place to take my dog on a walk.

If you want to be harassed by asshole cyclist, this is your place! I am a considerate trail walker with my dog and make sure she stays out of their way and I still get mumbles under the breath and rude comments while walking this trail. Honestly, I love the trail, when cyclist AREN’T on it!

It is a decent park. Looks like it would be fun to paddle board there, and they have lots of stations for grilling. I have been to better maintained parks in Colorado. Lots of bike riders. If you need to get outside, it is a decent outing.

I am writing a review after so many years past but here I go- I did paddleboaring around the reservoir and it was okay. Pretty crowded parking lot and also a line to get in since you have to pay to get in. Get there early.

It goes from residential area to Cherry Creek State Park. Nice clean hike, lots of bicyclers. Boring as a hike but nice trails for running.

Fun and easy trail to access

Enjoyed the 60degree blue sky day December 9,2017. Saw a Bald Eagle and several deer. Nice easy stroll for 8 plus miles!!

Great suburban trail with miles in natural preserves and along the creek. All concrete. It actually runs about 10 miles from the cherry creek trail to its end east of E-470. All concrete and perfect for family bike rides or a morning run.

Lots of concrete and mostly flat. Some good dirt tracks into the trees and through the grass. Nice views of the “lake” and surrounding creeks & swamps. Perfect for locals. Not really worth driving out of the way.

Hiking saw deer.

HAVE TO PAY TO GET IN JUST TO BIKE! RIDICULOUS

Easy road biking trail, nice views, not much traffic at certain times of the evening or certain times of the year out of peak season.

Didnt realize you had to pay for entry... long line at the gate Tu afternoon. We left.

I love to rent a kayak from there and get some exercise in while enjoying the peaceful waters! Will soon try a paddle board as well! :)

No shade it's hot walking on the pavement. Plan to walk before it gets warm! Or plan to ride your bike. It's quick and a very easy bike path!

This is a weekly stop for our family. Lots of explore on our way to the off leash dog park area.

Very beautiful and surprising find in my first trip to Denver. We only had enough time to make it about halfway around, but it was still enjoyable.
