Not a hike at all, paved pathway around Sloans. Beautiful nonetheless! Normally pretty busy.

This is a beautiful hike around a lake with lots of wildlife in the area (ie rabbits, waterfowl). The scenery is beautiful and it is easy to forget that you are in Denver. Well worth a stop.

Beautiful quick run or walk for your lunch hour if you work close. Only took me an hour to get there, walk the route and get back to work

Good for a run in the middle of the city!

I wouldn't say this is a hike by any means as it's all flat. But it's a great walking trail and excellent for strollers and dogs. There's also several playgrounds around the lake so if the kids wanted to get out and play for a bit...it's an option.
Only downsize is already mentioned from other folks, but there's tons of Geese and their droppings, everywhere. Which actually sometimes would make certain spots smell.
But overall....easy walk, great views, fun location.

Awesome park to run in, especially if you are just starting out at higher altitude because its flat! I run by myself so I was happy to see many moms with kids and older women on bikes around the lake, especially for 10 am on a Monday. It looked like park services had cleaned up most of the goose poop but there are geese everywhere throughout the park. And as a minnesotan whose used to running around lakes, it made me a little sad to see such poor water quality, because there is nothing better than jumping in after a hot summer run.

Beautiful park overall, with superb views of the mountains and the Denver downtown skyline, especially at sunset! The major downside, however, is the goose poop...it’s EVERYWHERE!

Good for a jog as well as guaranteeing seeing animals. The abundance of wildlife makes the 1 mile track interesting

Just the facts... If you are concerned for your physical and emotional health - avoid Crown Hill Lake Park.
It is currecntly disgusting and as a visitor for over ten years I don't forsee it improving.

Yes, the sunset views are great but being in the park subjects you sometimes to violent and barking dogs that some pet owners can't or won't control. Only a few pet owners are responsonible for destroying this park by allowing their dogs to pee and poop anywhere.

The sidewalks are now riddled with poop from both dogs and geese and Jefferson County doesn't have the budget or management skills the keep the pathways clear or to penalize the few that ignore the law and park rules. When you consider that hundreds of dogs visit this park routinely, the disrepectful add up. It's not a people park anymore, it's a dog waste park - yesterday I witnessed a man dumping the dog poop he brought from outside the park. Not only do you get poop on your shoes and drop trace amounts into your car and home, you now smell it when walking past every trash can.

Some horse owners contribute too by leaving a mountain of horse pie on the cement walkways. Also, more and more people are smoking marijuana in the park even though there are posted signs prohibiting it. What a violent risk this poses and an overall dissappointment.

Nice trail around the lake with great city and mountain views. Downsides: disgusting goose poop everywhere and “toxic” algae in lake so no dogs or swimming.

Good easy city walk

This lake is beautiful with a ton of activity. Lot of people use the area for a huge variety fo activities so it is quite busy. The path is paved and of course plenty of Geese so great for a family stroll.

With Boba- no shade but nice paved walkway for miles and miles - directions were unclear so park at a meter and bring water

An easy loop with a near by dog park. Beautiful Mountain View’s especially at sunset.

Nice and easy trail. I had the blessing of a rain cloud above. Temperature was about 70. Great trail!

Great for an easy walk after work or early morning. Stroller friendly

Nice walk, friendly people and dogs.

I love Sloan’s Lake Park. Great for walking with the pup!

Nice area for walking. But the trails closer to the outer perimeter of the area are best for avoiding the crowds (kids, bikes, rollerbladers) who use the interior cement sidewalk.

Nice trail. Lots of trees and shrubs.

Fun park to run, or just hang out in. Usually pretty busy, and lots of water fowl so watch out for poop! Nice paved path that goes completely around the lake, with a few dirt paths that also go fully around and closer to the water.

It was pretty disappointed day to begin with.. I was planning on going to a 6 mile hike but something came up and I had to change my plan. Then I still wanted to enjoy the nice 65 degree weather, so looked up near by trail and came to this one. It was short trail, so I didn't want to run but to walk and enjoy the sound of birds and water. Very nice and quiet trail. Glad I checked this one off from my list with a satisfaction.

The views are beautiful. Parking was easy.
