Cherry Creek Regional Trail

2nd day on this trail-

July, 2024 by barbscondo

We again parked at Village Greens Park (lots of big shade trees to keep the jeep cool) and this time headed south on the trail. It winds around the Cherry Creek Reservoir and then meanders south. Not much shade in this direction. We rode 10 miles south to Cottonwood Park and then turned around (getting hot) so a nice 20 mile round trip. There was a big prairie dog colony and a long stretch of trail with baby grasshoppers hopping all over the joint. The thing I enjoyed most about this trail is that it is NOT straight like so many-constantly twisting and curving. Made it more interesting. There are some fast food restaurants along the way at one point.

Mary Carter Greenway (Arapahoe Greenway)

Fun path along the South Platte River

July, 2024 by barbscondo

Had a hard time finding a good parking place. Ended up parking near the Regal theater at River Point Shopping area in Sheridan. From here you can directly access the Mary Carter Trail and The Bear Creek Trail. This puts you almost at the North end of the Trail. (We did see a good parking area at the south end of the trail-not sure what that is called) We rode south for about 8 miles to the end. It connects directly to the C-470 trail both East and West at the point. Really fun trail/Some shade/right along the river/people tubing/in inflatables going over the little rapids/huge ducks/nice stopping place with lots of tables in the shade at Nixon's Coffee and someone told us there is a brewery right off the trail.

Cherry Creek Regional Trail

Wonderful fun path

July, 2024 by barbscondo

We parked at Village Greens Park which is near the Cherry Creek Reservoir. from here you could choose North or South on the trail. We rode north on the trail for 11 miles and ended up in the center of Denver at First Street. Then the trail started to run along the busy street so we turned around. It was a great 22 mile round trip ride. Quite a bit of shade/lots to look at/prairie dog colony/birds/snake on the trail/lots of parks/golf courses/nice homes/runs mostly along the creek/lots of fun underpasses by the water.

Pikes Peak Greenway Trail

Unexpectedly great trail

July, 2024 by barbscondo

We parked at America the Beautiful Park along the curb parking. From there we rode North 10 miles and then back. Great trail. Some parts are dirt but is very smooth. No problem at all. You are really along the river the whole way- always nice to see the water. There was quite a lot of shaded areas to my surprise. We went up one side of the river and returned on the other where you see on the map that it goes in both sides. There are a lot of side trails that connect with this trail. I liked it because there were other bikers and walkers. Everyone courteous. I liked it because lots of stuff to look at. Wish we here for more than a day. Would do again and explore some of the side trails.

Lee Gulch Trail

nice suburban ride

June, 2024 by bill.leigher

Due to a detour caused by a portion of the High Line Canal trail being closed for maintenance I rode about 4 miles on the Lee Gulch Trail. It wasn’t crowded on a Tuesday morning. There were a couple of small washouts and loose gravel in few places. The trail winds through several Littleton. neighborhoods.

South Platte River Trail

Trail Continues to Brighton

April, 2024 by rlandis24

Although the map shows the Platte River Trail ending at E-470, the trail continues seamlessly another 3.8 miles north to Veterans Park in Brighton.

Sand Creek Regional Greenway

Avoid trail north if I-70

September, 2023 by awalker2010_tl

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.

Cherry Creek Regional Trail

Mostly flat, interesting people, art, and in the heart of the city. Highly recommend.

High Line Canal Trail

Scenic in parts, Mostly unmarked & unmaintained.

June, 2023 by chad.rex77

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.
