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!

Yuck! Bugs everywhere! Doesn’t seem to be in a great part of town ether. Water was also gross.

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.

This trail is our go to bike trail because it is close enough to bike to from home and not too long for my kiddos. as others have stated it is not a full loop. More specifically: when you get towards the northeat side you leave Quincy Reservoir through a spinning metal gate. You 'can' put bikes through here by dismounting and rolling them through upright on the back tires. We have a trailer for the littles and we got it through but had to take them out and detatch it from the bike. then you have to ride/walk along Quincy Ave which is fairly steep to get back up to the parking area. I much prefer the out and back path due to this. Also note this is only open March-October. You also have to pay to park there or buy a season pass. I would recommend it for people nearby who can walk/ride in, or for fishing.

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.

Nice paved trail and dog friendly

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.

This trail is ok but nothing special. I’ve walked it and biked it multiple times because it’s close to home. If you’re close and looking to get some exercise, it’s fine. I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to experience it.

Best part easily near Star K Ranch Nature Preserve.

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.

very relaxing but I don't think it's worth paying 10 bucks to walk the trail.
