Hiked this trail late this morning. The trailhead is at the Slough Pond. (There is no longer a trailhead at the Visitor’s Center) The first third of a mile to the trail loop is in the shade all day and the ground is frozen already the runoff makes for a very icy trail in parts. It was almost impossible to get past the pit toilets because of the snow/ice. Did slip on the way down there.
As was mentioned in the description, there is a large stand of mature, large diameter, 50’+ aspens before you get to the shelter. Have to check that out next fall. I’d suggest going CCW to start as to not have to make a steep descent on loose rocks.

Its somewhat scenic but there are lots of homeless campers along the trail.

The park opens early at 5AM, so I recommend getting there before the crowds so you can truly enjoy the rock formations, which are incredible!

I would call the many times I've been here a walking/hiking experience due to the fact that it does extend awhile and I had done multiple laps of which eventually becomes more of a hike. all in all nice scenery and good views of downtown Pueblo.

Glad to walk on clockwise. Walking on a trail with a dog on leash definitely uses more energy and more patience, and at times, poses more risk when you descend. I know my dog is thinking the same. Two-legged person can slip and fall, dragging the more secured 4-legged dog down. There were some spots that were steep and my dog was not very happy to have the other end of the leash held by the unstable two-legged person. My dog has the natural strategies to climb down, while this human prevented her to do so (my apologies). Lots of shade, and some great views.

Great trail for walking, or taking the kids out, but there are a lot of stops for bikers. Scenery is very nice When you get through town.

Great park, but super busy almost all the time. Lots of geese and geese poop - frustrating walking a dog who loves to eat it! Be sure to stay in the pedestrian lane, bikers will let you know (not always nicely) if you're in the wrong lane.

Up hill for a good chunk so it does challenge you a bit. Fun. Nice views but it was the same view the whole time.

A nice, easy paved city trail. Wheelchair friendly, at least around the main park area. There is also a wooded disc golf area.

I expected to go to a hiking trail next to sand creek but it turned out it's just a giant sidewalk that kind of follows the creek. I wouldn't go back unless my GPS led me down the trail to get to another destination.

Really nice walk around a very pretty park. The best part, if you like this sort of thing, was looking at all the amazing homes around the park! It was a beautiful morning!

Poorly marked trail. Not much to see. It's a nice park for kids with a playground though.

Super easy, lovely trail for a leisurely walk out of doors. Trail circles around Cottonwood Creek Park, which is a great park for all ages. Mostly paved, part of the loop is gravel. Popular for running, cycling, walking, dogs, kids, stroller-friendly.

A very good trail for a north/south route to cycle through the city safely while avoiding traffic. Pretty well maintained, though the further south you go, the more numerous the homeless camps become. For the most part, a side from their trash, I've never had any issues with any of the transient population. A big improvement would be if there were a connecting trail from the Greenway Trail to the Centennial Campus of PPCC. The only ways there now involve dangerous traffic on roads with minimal shoulder space.

Clement Park is in Littleton, CO. Butted up against the park is Columbine High School and the memorial. Great park with lots of fun shops nearby too. Grab a cup of coffee/tea and go for a stroll. Fun birding too!

As mentioned earlier, not a great area. Also, not really a hiking trail, just a paved loop around the lake, which does offer some nice views.

First hike since moving to Denver so I don't have anything to compare it to (and all with a 3 month old puppy). It was a nice hike with great views and nothing extremely challenging.

Walked until the sign that said twin lakes. Went during the middle of the day and there were mainly bikers. Not very scenic. I doubt I’ll go back.

I have jogged and ridden this trail many times. just make sure if you ride it, you stay in the bike lane! Otherwise pedestrians will yell at you!

Perfection in the city

Def do it counterclockwise if you want a challenge to start. Nice hike if you’re short on time and want to get the heart pumping and some views. Def go behind the shed.

I wanted to take my two dogs for a walk... this walk ended up being well over an hour maybe even two. Washington Park is large, great location, a beautiful lake and a lot of activities and action going on.

Excellent inner city graveled walk/run option.

Great place to bring kids.

Widened private path tucked behind Stetson Hills neighborhood easily accessible in town. Stroller friendly. Somewhat sketchy under bridges and minimal shade; bring hat and lots of water. Happy hiking!

The lakes here are pretty and there are plenty of fowl. The surrounding traffic is quite noisy though and it is hard to escape the feeling of cars being on top of you.

Bring lots of water

Great for young kids! Sunny paved trail. We explore the creek and love finding all different plants, flowers, and insects. All types of birds are present too including ducks. Found a snake shed on one of the rock outcropping as well! Great easy stroll.
