Nice and easy trail. I had the blessing of a rain cloud above. Temperature was about 70. Great trail!

Great neighborhood walk. The paved portion was perfect for walking with a stroller and the (optional) gravel portion would be great as well for a little stroll. Not too busy on a weekday morning, good amount of shade and benches to rest at. The playground at the end was perfect for my 3 year old.

It really isn't a "trail" but around the park in the middle of the busy streets and apartments.

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.

It’s more of a walk in a park than a hike, but it’s a nice long loop to walk you dogs.

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

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 walk/hike, especially when hiking with little ones! My three year old walked most of it herself. I love how spacious the park is - it feels more like a nature walk.

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.

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.

A hidden Gem- look east and you’ll see the city and west you’ll see the mountains. Cool developments near the new light rail.

Nice trail for me and my dog. Moderately busy, especially when the ball parks are in use.

I love Sloan’s Lake Park. Great for walking with the pup!

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.

Fun park to run, or just hang out in. Usually pretty busy, and lots of water fowl so watch out for poop! Nice paved path that goes completely around the lake, with a few dirt paths that also go fully around and closer to the water.

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.

The views are beautiful. Parking was easy.

Beautiful area. Nice easy walk to do.
