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

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

I have jogged and ridden this trail many times. just make sure if you ride it, you stay in the bike lane! Otherwise pedestrians will yell at you!

Perfection in the city

I wanted to take my two dogs for a walk... this walk ended up being well over an hour maybe even two. Washington Park is large, great location, a beautiful lake and a lot of activities and action going on.

Excellent inner city graveled walk/run option.

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

Awesome

Great Trail.

The lakes here are pretty and there are plenty of fowl. The surrounding traffic is quite noisy though and it is hard to escape the feeling of cars being on top of you.

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.

My favorite place to take a long walk during the summer. There is a small fishing pond that would be great for kids. Nice to choose from an inner or outer trail depending on how much time I have. Stroller, wheelchair, and definitely kid friendly park

2.5 miles around wash park. People with dogs are not considerate at this park. Nonetheless pretty area to get a quick run in.

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.

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!

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.

Beautiful area. Nice easy walk to do.

Nothing exciting about this "trail". Neighborhood run.

Great people watching location and interesting history behind the park. Decades ago it used to be a cemetery and when they were repurposing the land for park use they weren’t able to find about 1,000 unmarked graves. As you walk on the park soil you are probably stepping over someone’s remains so tread lightly!

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

Short nice run. I went by the river on my way back and it was so nice and cozy with snow falling.
