Beautiful park. The goose poo is a little overwhelming. Not much you can do though I guess.

Decent trail for being so close to the city. We saw deer, hawks, a bald eagle, a snake and tons of prairie dogs.

Flooded so just wandered around the trail area with my dog since it's paved.

Beautiful wildflowers right now. Very little shade so bring water. Fairly easy trail and can be kid friendly. Watch out for bikers.

I personally really enjoy this park. Stroller and family friendly. Plenty of room for the bikers to go by without worrying about collisions.

One of my favs. Easy to walk around the pond, can branch off of trail to sidewalks for more distance. I'm not a birdwatcher, but see many who are. Best during week, busy on weekends. Easy to park at library. 2x around is slightly under 2 miles.

trail I nice a scenic.

Nice little stroll for a city trail, lots of wildlife.

Level trail, relatively heavily used especially on weekends by dog-walkers, bird watchers, joggers, Pokemon folks. Still, a nice easy suburban walk. Occasional interesting shore birds and song birds spotted here.

If you’re into hobo watching this is the place for you! You can get a decent peep show here if you know what I mean(wink). Make sure to stop by around 8 o’clock to catch the homeless gentlemen masturbating into the sunset! Would give three stars, but too many mosquitos.

Nice walk/run in the city! Great views, many runners, many geese, great Denver park!

Good trail for after work! The trail is well established. A good walk.

nice trail but the homeless population is depressing

absolutely love this hike...for a few reasons. first, the 60 degree panoramic views -- uninterrupted by any human development, are spectacular. the prairie seems to unfold all the way to the base of the front range visually, making this a photographer's paradise. also home to a bald eagle, and you can sometimes see the eastern herd of buffalo from the overlook (2 mile hike from parking lot). yes, you can hear Pena Blvd traffic, so maybe wear earphones...but the visuals are fantastic. this hike would be especially nice for anyone that is on their way to the airport and doesn't want to wait around the terminal for another hour. highly recommended.

Great urban lake and walk around. Yes, there is geese pop on the paths, but it's a Nature Walk! The shade is there, the gravel option parallel to the "geese" path is great for knees, and the sidewalk works for kids, wheelchairs, and bikes. A wonderful day watching the boaters, as I got a great walk in!! Check it out.

I actually rode my mountain bike but the tread and suspension wasn't necessary. The north end and goes along the interstate at times and crosses a handful of roads but you also go through parks and along cherry creek on the southern section, which was beautiful. Good for a casual ride or walk. i started on a Saturday at 8:30am and there was low traffic. Around 9:30-10 it picked up to about moderate traffic. If you're near it, looking to get outside and move, check it out!

This hike was beautiful. The views were great! I would say it was more on the easy side of moderate. Did not even take me 2 hours to walk it. Very beautiful views!!!

Quick easy week night walk with my pup!

Family park right next to the road. Some nice bridges and streams.

Be careful walking. I’ve seen lots of spent needles on this trail. It’s a disguised area of the city that people can hide easily and shoot up.

Still one of my fave places to run in Denver. Flat-ish, well-maintained, lovely views & you can make tons of different loops to keep it interesting & add mileage. Only problem is it makes me want to get a dog because there are so many cute ones out being walked
