Just a neighborhood walk/run. Nothing exciting. OK view.

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!!!

Cheeseman is a nice area. Lots of people out walking, playing games and walking/playing with their dogs. The large grass field is awesome, and has much less goose poop than City Park.

Beautiful views. Fairly flat trail. Great for a jog.

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

Great city park, has a awesome view of the city as well as the mountain. Very well traveled, and a great place to bike, run, or workout.

Nice and easy run, pretty views of the mountains.

This loop is entirely paved and is very well traveled. There are bathrooms on either side of the lake which is nice to have. The lake so beautiful and there are nice views of the city. I prefer a softer surface to run on, otherwise this is a great place to run.

Best park in town!

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.

I have walked this twice a week, two rounds each. There's a side walk around the entire lake so it's good for strollers, carriages and wheelchairs. Benches along the way for those who just want to sit and enjoy the beauty. Lots of runners. Watch your feet as the geese are plentiful and leave their markings.

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

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.
