Road this trail as a novice. Beautiful trail with a variety of terrain to see, and a nice view of Denver waiting for you at the reservoir. Homeless people do tend to set up camp closer to the downtown Denver area. But, once you make your way further the trail is quiet. I went during the week so I can imagine it would get crowded on the weekend. Happy travels!

Easy trail- we didn’t it with little electric scooters from the convention center to the REI. Round trip takes less than 30 minutes on scooter, perhaps that distance would take 1-2 hours on foot.

It’s a great trail, but very busy on the weekends and not a lot of shade in the beginning of the day

This is definitely not for a hike but for running. It's a dog park, so watch out for running dogs (I love dogs!) if you're scared of them. Smells not present as horses are nearby, but beautiful skyline and great sunset view to enjoy.

What an awesome trail. Great ride and beautiful change of scenery. Entered by Holiday Inn Denver-Cherry Creek rode to the lake, around and back. Approximately 24 miles. Nice, wide path and not much traffic around the lake on a Friday late morning.

Well paved paths make this more of a casual walk than anything. still cool scenery.

Needs trees near the main entrance. The water is always enjoyed by my doggo. Go with a dog, or watch someone's dog play with other dogs.

The dogs love to play in the creek.

This is a nice paved walk in a local park. Nothing great to see here except for a nice view of a river the path crosses over. Great place for the family.

I take it to work from Washington Park. Really great way to bike into the city.

Awesome

Great Trail.

Great neighborhood walk. The paved portion was perfect for walking with a stroller and the (optional) gravel portion would be great as well for a little stroll. Not too busy on a weekday morning, good amount of shade and benches to rest at. The playground at the end was perfect for my 3 year old.

My wife and I have biked this trail a few times and we love it. It really gives you a good and different perspective of Denver. The trail is fairly flat and there is a lot of tree coverage so it doesn't get too hot in the summer. There's also plenty of places to stop and get a bite to eat, drink or just take a rest. The only bad thing about this trail is that once you get close to downtown you start seeing a lot of homeless people near the trail and some are using drugs.

It’s more of a walk in a park than a hike, but it’s a nice long loop to walk you dogs.

Great walk/hike, especially when hiking with little ones! My three year old walked most of it herself. I love how spacious the park is - it feels more like a nature walk.

Great area to run. 8 miles around the park Starting at the East entrance. There are a lot of trails in the park and connecting to the park for the long runs. If you're going for a long run or a short run you can find it here. It is also very scenic and has wild life.

Decent place to run when in the area visiting.

Great day, easy transition from farmland to mountains. Helped acclimate to higher elevation. Had two knee surgeries, trail was easy on knees. Loved the view.

Pretty area right downtown for some nature time . One side is for pedestrians and other is for biking and roller blading . All paved . Pretty, clean creek and dog friendly ! Walk alongside the city skyline!

Great trail for commuting on bike. Also good for enjoyment through walking, running, and biking.

Pretty neighborhood run. However, too short to call it a trail. Just another "trail' marked off from the list in CO.

Nice path to walk with our 3 y/o, paved for the majority and at just under 2 miles it was a perfect distance. A kids playground at the end was a nice surprise also. The GPS route takes you on the dirt trail (a little muddy in February) but there’s an adjacent paved walkway which follows a similar path.
