The Niver Creek Trail parallels the Coronado Parkway for nearly 2 miles across Thornton, a northern suburb of Denver. At its eastern end, the trail connects to the Platte River Trail
, a 28-mile north-south route along the waterway. About mid-way, the trail passes Rotella Park, which offers restrooms, picnic shelters, a playground, and volleyball and basketball courts.
Parking is available in Rotella Park (Coronado Parkway and Nueva Vista Drive).
