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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice ride, started downtown and went to the 11 mile marker. Nice scenery of the creek/river, other than that not too much going on. There's a mall area in Glendale, ate lunch at the whole foods there. A few nice stops along the way, and the whole thing is paved and easy to follow. You can feel the slight uphill going east, but it's not bad at all.

great commuter bike trail; not much for walking or running.

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

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

light easy walk....hot today

It's really great except for the occasional hypodermic needle and crazy bums
