Nice mostly flat trail with Buffalo close by, beautiful scenery & polite park users.

This trail has a cool lookout area where you can see the Bald Eagle nesting area.

Wonderful little city trail that feels like a little prairie dog and rabbit wonderland! There is a sweet lake and it was very quiet as well. Fabulous little running path in the city. Not a destination trail but if you are near it and need a leg stretch - it’s perfect!

Great views and really good place to see yourself a P.D...

Nice area to walk and get some light excersise breaks my heart to see all the trash in the creek and every where in general

Beautiful location! A hidden gem, for sure. My kids loved running around. A very cool feature is the different habitats all in one park.

The one really cool thing about this hike is at the beginning of the trail where there was a family of prairie dogs (basically groundhogs) with their mounds in a field. Otherwise the hike was meh.

Trailhead is right by the busy Pena blvd on the way to the airport. Have to walk about a half mile along the service road until you get to the real trailhead. The actual trail is pretty, not too much shade along the creek and then opens up with views of the mountains in the distance.

this trail does allow dogs.

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

Great, easy, winding path through a variety of landscapes. Lots of different trails/loops with plenty of signs and maps along the way.

I walk this trail (and include the wetlands loop) at least once a month, year round. Each season is beautiful in its own way and I love seeing the variety of animals and birds that come with each visit. I've snowshoed here in a foot of fresh powder! It's in the city, but feels far away. To add on to someone's previous post, I believe that no dogs are allowed to protect the wetlands and I have seen a coyote here (and heard many others).

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.

Running in snow. Just to knock off a trail from the list. It was OK.

Nice day to take a walk with the kids.

Trail was open and a pleasant walk. Surrounded by the expanding city but lots of prairie dogs, rabbits, geese, ducks, kingfishers, and many other kinds of birds. Good stroll for little kids.

This is an easy walk through the woods and wetlands in Cherry Creek State Park. We went in the winter so no green or colors on the trees but the naked trees have their own defined beauty. Unfortunately this trail is off limits to dogs, bikes, and horses, probably to protect the wetlands (?). In any case we still took our dog bc we had already parked and started walking and no one seemed to care. It was clear others ignored the signs as well due to the number of droppings we saw (pick up after your dog people!). In any case, it was a nice short walk and probably nicer in Spring-Fall but since dogs aren't allowed we probably won't be back.

Loved this trail it was 4 miles out and back. There was a nice look out point at the end (2mile mark). The trail was pretty decent, there were a couple of prairie dog holes. Turning trees during the Fall = great colors. We went on a Wednesday morning and the trail was pleasantly unoccupied

No climbing here, its mostly flat except for a decent from the parking area where you can either take stairs or a gradual decline ramp down. There are nice views of the wetlands but when we visited, maybe a 1/4 of the loop was closed. Most of the loop is unshaded and you can see houses nearby. A little unsettling fact is it appears to be next to a jail. You can see some of the fence while on the trail. Maybe that's why it felt abandoned. There were also tons of traps on the hillside for meerkats so that ruined some of the nature feel to it. We sat and watched the little guys hoping they would stay away from the traps. I understand they're a pest and all but it just seemed strange to be trapping them in a park? Overall, this spot isn't ideal if you want to get some quality nature time.

A nice small park. A good walk if you live near by. The river has very small waterfalls that flow into a lake that us populated with natural tall grasses.

Parallel to cherry creek trail. Park could benefit from better signage as it's unclear where 4 mile loop begins. Heavily biked cherry creek trail did not impress my

Not much to see...small creek and pond but the rest of the trail is surrounded by buildings. Easy hike.
