The C-470 East Trail closely follows the state highway stretching 15 miles across southern Denver. At its western end, it joins the C-470 West Trail
and, from its eastern end, trail-goers can connect to the popular Cherry Creek Trail
, which extends 40 miles from downtown Denver to communities south.
Parking can be found near the trail's western end in Chatfield State Park. On the trail's eastern end, one can park at Challenger Regional Park and take the Cherry Creek Trail a short distance up to the start of the C-470 East Trail.
