High Line Canal Trail (CO)

Disappointing

October, 2022 by dricter7

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.

Ralston Creek Trail

great trail, bad signage

October, 2022 by jcmzskh578

Beautiful scenic views at the west end near the reservoir, but bad signage throughout the trail. Highly recommend riding it with the map open on your phone until you remember the turns

US 36 Bikeway

exhausted from exhaust

Would recommend respirator unless you like carbon monoxide. Very wide surface and less dangerous than the road. Lots of parallel traffic. Air quality alert.

Clear Creek Trail (CO)

Out and Back

September, 2022 by bill.spam

Started in Golden, went all the way to the South Platte River, and back. As of today there are no problems nor detours, excepting some artists working on painting cool stuff on the actual concrete trail towards the South Platte end, and that's just 2 very short sections just to the side of the concrete part of the trail. Not a problem. I have enjoyed this trail for the better part of 20 years, and there are no longer any more partially-finished sections. If you don't live in Golden, I recommend starting at the South Platte and working your way up the "hill" to Golden ... then you are more or less going downhill on the second half of the ride. Just a teensy bit easier.
Enjoy!
Oh, 5 stars because it is a nice long trail in the city that, with the exception of a small section, is all trail, and no streets.

Farmers' High Line Canal Trail

no ebike issue here

No where near Cherry Hills or Greenwood village.

Piney Creek Trail

Disaster

August, 2022 by djudish

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!

Weaver Gulch Regional Trail

Nice suburban ride. Mixed path materials

July, 2022 by melissamiller10

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.

Little Dry Creek Trail

Better have a map

July, 2022 by k976wtnjz8

Great trail with lots of twists and turns, connection to Clear Creek is not obvious and signage is poor.

Bear Creek Trail (Denver)

great trail

May, 2022 by sarabiro18

It was my first time on a trail in the area and I loved it, paved all the way through, no crossing roads or being close to the road, quiet and beautiful sights. Highly recommend it!

Piney Creek Trail

Nice trail but…

May, 2022 by mrsroxc

It would be nice to have more clear signage at some of the areas (around the preschool). I really had to watch the map on my phone which requires me to stop. Otherwise it was a an easy ride with a few moderate slopes. Took me 45 minutes from Red tail hawk park to Cherry Creek.
