Super beautiful!!!!

This is a great short walk right by the airport. The landscape is beautiful.

Great hike on a Thursday afternoon.
Not many people on the trail.

We love the off leash dog park!

It’s a great place to walk the dogs ! Just a reminder though that snakes are active. I mistakenly let my dog off the leash and as we got closer to the high line canal trail a huge rattle snake was just sitting there in the sun. Luckily I had enough time to tell to my dog and she was not bitten. Just beware!

It's like... a path to get from one place to another place without having to walk on the street. Really boring for a hiker. It's a path you'd run, or walk your dog if you live nearby, or ride your bike to go somewhere kind of a place. Which is fine, but don't expect a "hike" or too much to look at. (also, lots of sun, so dress accordingly)

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!

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.

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!!

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.

Best part easily near Star K Ranch Nature Preserve.

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.

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.

it is a better trail for biking but I enjoyed the views of frozen weeks and winter airs and the connection of trails that sprouts through the area.
