I went hiking here for the first time and it was awesome. Got a real good workout climbing the mountain.
Would not recommend this trail any further north of I-70/Quebec bridges if you’re a runner. Numerous people doing drugs on the trail. Left over foils. Watch for needles. Not to mention the excessive amount of trash in this area. Pretty sad and disappointing.
Mostly flat, interesting people, art, and in the heart of the city. Highly recommend.
I typically take High Line connecting to C-470 Bikeway onto Mary Carter Greenway from Redstone Park.
Work along C-470 Bikeway has a lot of detours, routing around McLellen Reservoir. I take High Line to county line trail through Mineral, then crossing Sante Fe connecting to Mary Carter Greenway behind Aspen Grove at the South Platte Nature Center.
The northwest end of the High Line takes you around Dekoevend Park, a very scenic ride with tree canopy in some areas.
Very scenic trail with wooded areas and many twists and turns

Rode the northern end of this trail from the 17th and Laredo area. Such a disappointment. Lots of broken glass as well as many homeless camps. Also quite a few stops to cross busy streets.
First trail I've tried using the app. It was a nice ride. My trike made it through easily. Most of one way is downhill so the return was a little more tiring. Overall, pretty fun for an evening ride.
The greenway is beautiful and a wonderful ride! However, south of America the Beautiful Park there are multiple homeless encampments, especially under the bridges.
This is a fine trail for hiking, but not for biking. Trail surface is mostly loose gravel, there is usually one track on the side that is firm enough to ride on. This trail is not suitable for kids and occasional riders because of the loose material and steep grade. I have ridden rail trails in 42 states and this one is the steepest I have encountered, probably because it was a narrow gauge railway. The steep grade, high altitude and loose material make the trail challenging for casual riders. I was constantly in the lower two gears of my mountain bike, and uphill averaged 4 mph with breaks.
The portage around the collapsed tunnel is an unimproved hiking trail and will be difficult for kids and older adults. It would require a stout person to handle the portage with an electric bike.
A better bike ride is the gold camp road. Although there is some car traffic the surface is much better. Start at pullout No. 1 near the Bear Creek Nature Center (245 Bear Creek Road) and ride up hill 5 miles to the parking lot near Hellen Hunt Falls. That is 3 miles of asphalt and 2.3 miles gravel with one tunnel, turn around and coast back to your car.
If you go to the park at the beginning of the trail to the west the map takes you to an open field! Far from the actual trail spent two wasted hours!
Nice ride around a small lake and through some suburban areas. Some gravel/dirt and some concrete plus a little street crossings. Mixed use with walking, bikes and dogs on leash. Gentle slope.
