The sun really beats down on you and there isn’t a view that you are making a goal towards to see. But it is nice to be next to a river and also to sometimes see Big Horn Sheep.

More of a dirt road than a trail. Well packed but plenty of room for bikers and walkers/runners. Would recommend getting here early as it does start to become very popular around 8-9am. I got here about 7:15 and it was perfect!

Beautiful place

Parking lot is back open

definitely a hot hike! best at sunset or early morning. not much shade. but very pretty and easy for kids

Beautiful views, gentle slope, easy access!

This trail goes way farther than that. The problem is that there is a missing part of the trail close to Titan however I parked close to Lucent and took the high line canal all the way to Hampdem (285) is about 21 mile one way. All gravel, super well kept, couple nice bathrooms with drinking water available and a lot of shade from the old cottonwood trees. Love it!

beautiful scenery

it's never open anymore. we've gone there 3 times and they have locked the gates.

Easy hike with great scenery and only 30 minutes from Denver. Went on a Saturday morning and lot was almost full by 9am so get there early on the weekends.

This was more of a walk than a hike. It’s a dirt road used by Denver Water. It was nice because the road is wide, but just not what we expected. The water, rock formations, mountains & wildlife are great. There’s very little shade though - almost none on the path itself. We clocked 13.91 miles from the parking lot to the big dam and back.

First time on the trail and really enjoyed the ride. Plenty of room for everyone, and covered areas along the way if needed. The surface is well maintained with only a few areas of loose gravel and I never saw a rut! The parking lot was packed (Saturday) by 11:30 but there was a stream of people leaving so you shouldn’t have to wait long.

Nice stroll through open space. Lots of birds and beautiful rock formations. Gentle

This trail is our daily walk after dinner. Close to home with beautiful valley views. Wildflowers are sparse however birds are plentiful. We enjoy the temperature changes throughout the walk.

Good for easy evening biking. Not crowded - just you, nature and horse poops :)

Easy hike.

The ride to the dam is very smooth and relaxing. The road is wide enough for two car, so it's easy to move around all the people traffic.

I recommend going the opposite way and going through the wetlands towards the State Park for a more adventurous time.

Best hike so far, we did the 10 mile loop, intense at times to get your heart rate up, then moderate level to catch the views!

Such a great park for an evening stroll. The people were friendly, the trail was gentle and there was lots of wildlife and scenery to enjoy.

More of a walk than a hike but I still loved it. Went a few weeks ago and it was drizzling so there were very few people on the trail. Went a couple miles and then turned around. So beautiful!

Probably a good trail for biking, but for hiking it was not great. Most of the trail I had to place my feet directly in front of each other to walk. Views weren't great and it goes through a neighborhood for about half a mile. The trail was nice and quiet though, not very many people hiking even on Memorial Day weekend. Plenty of geocaching on the route too.

Well trafficked trail on Memorial day weekend. Easy going trail with some good views and awesome wildlife. Finished in under an hour with plenty of time to take it all in.

easy loop for family and pet

We live close to the trail and this is one we love to hit up when we need to get out! Beautiful views, easy parking, great trail!

Easy trail with really beautiful views. My friend and I did the trail in the late afternoon which was really nice. Not too many people/dogs, sizable parking lot and clearly marked directions along the way.

Beautiful trail close to Denver. Easy, nice path, well maintained. Nice views of the foothills and red rocks formations. Highly recommend for an easy day hike.

Perfect for trail running this time of year! No mud and lots of beautiful views! It’d be a little hot in June/July since there isn’t any coverage on the trail. The road/trail is very wide so it accommodates all the bikers, runners, and hikers (including strollers) just fine!

Perfect trail for running! I saw a baby rattlesnake and lots of bighorn sheep.
