favorite part of my run in the neighborhood. It’s about a mile. Lots of hills near by to add to your run too :)

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.

It’s a nice trail to take your dog on a walk around a lake thats paved.

Nice and easy run, pretty views of the mountains.

This trail is not a hiking or mountain biking trail. It is a city park trail that is mostly paved and well-maintained. Plenty of trees. It is great for bikes and roller blades with some really nice bike lanes separated from the walking lanes. It is a great place to run or walk, to ride bikes within city limits. There are two small lakes (looks like maybe paddle boarding is an option) and a fishing pond. Plenty of grass for volleyball or other activities, and some tennis courts. If you are expecting mountain/hiking this is not what you'll want. But if you want a great area within the city to get some exercise, it is a good choice.

Beautiful views. Minus one for there being way too many black flies during this time of year.

Great to walk, jog, or sit in the park by the water.

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.

Great wild nature in the city. I run the outside loop and then around the lake. The outside loop is awesome and really enjoyable in the long grasses and cottonwood trees. The park has great resources and maps.

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.

Great Denver park

Easy walk.
well-shaded in many parts as I walked it midday.
Will definitely do it again as it is convenient & close to home, but it isn't exactly a challenging course/path.

flat, mostly gravel trail that crosses some biking and driving areas. the views around Wash park are great

Great for kids or just a walk, busy though with lots of dogs, bicyclers, roller bladers too. Nice views for sunset!

Nice for walking, skating or leisurely cycling. Although the interstate is very close, this park still has a lovely view of the mountains and Lakeside Amusement park.
