Great trail for biking however I wish they would leave the surface alone and stop adding concrete!! Be careful when going into tunnels, these may be flooded and contain debris. You could also take a nasty fall, so please slow down. Lots of wildlife and great for bird watching!
Ran into construction along the trail at about Washington and 124th so we had to detour past the Eastlake train station and a little south. This is one of my favorite rides and connect 6 trails to make a 16 mile loop.
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.
This is an excellent trail to use for your bike rides! Easy to navigate, safe away from all traffic & plenty of rolling hills to enjoy.
We rode this trail as Stage 3 of our Tour de Great Plains and Colorado. Started at the “Big Easy” Trailhead and went west four miles - it’s only open four miles. The pavement is in good shape and about 10 feet wide. The trail is uphill going west and a nice downhill ride back east. There are nice restrooms at the trailhead and plenty of paved parking. This is a beautiful trail and not very crowded. When all segments (65 miles) are completed this will be one of the best trails in the US.
The terrain it’s in great conditions. Nice up and down hills.
Not a trail for gravel bikes. Rugged and rutty from the Sugarloaf Rd. Trailhead. Mountain bikes can handle it but double track with plenty of ATV traffic.
This is a scenic ride. From Frisco it is a steady slow climb which, given the elevation, was a challenge for me (and many others). The views are worth it! Coming downhill was a blast!
Mostly flat, interesting people, art, and in the heart of the city. Highly recommend.
We started in Golden and rode to the South Platte and into Downtown Denver The water is high enough to force a few underpass closures but it was beautiful the entire way. The trail passes through several municipalities and has really been improving over the years. It’s challenging to retrofit a trail around private property and buildings that have been in place for so long but they are doing a great job giving everyone a beautiful place to enjoy
