Explore the most popular road biking trails near Denver with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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.

Grew up on this green belt. Will always be a favorite.

Good easy city walk

Awesome

Great Trail.

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

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.

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

Nice that it is by a creek but most parts are by the freeway and behind homes and shopping centers. Some shady parts to chill.

Great views. Easy trail and clean. Love it!!

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.

3.5- Directions on All Trails does not lead to a parking lot or trailhead. Google Bear Creek Park instead. Paved walkway. Not a Loop. A LOT of bikers whizzing by which rarely ring bell or alert you. A few Benches but no trash cans unless you go a mile west to the playground. Homeless camping near creek. Not bad for a quick close one but I wouldn’t choose this again.

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!

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.

Nice place to jog. Not too busy. Paved and natural trails with plenty different loops.

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

great place to have fun and camping

Great place for a relaxing bike ride

Easy quiet walk this morning! My dog loved walking along the creek. Paved paths and bridges so easy access from the road. Wished people cleaned up after their pets and themselves more but other than that I highly recommend for a morning walk

The dog park is amazing!!!

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.

Good place to hike with kids. Pretty easy.

Very busy in the afternoon.

I enjoyed the part of the trail from York to Colorado. The portion between Colorado and Summit Grove is densely pack housing, and wasn't as enjoyable. I enjoyed the railroad theme, it was a beautiful day, and not taxing at all.

Loved this quiet trail. Great choice for me just visiting Denver this weekend.

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

Great trail for running. Mostly flat and below street level so it stays relatively cool. Lots of bikes and runners on the weekend.
