Thank you, Denver, for providing an easily accessible walk/run/bike path through your heart. The path has many entrances in Denver, goes under numerous bridges, follows the gurgling creek, and has artwork to keep you company.

I've been cycling the Creek trail for more than 20 years. I've all but given up road riding for the safety advantages of bicycle paths. The Creek trail runs along the city's second most famous waterway (after the Platte River) for miles and miles and is extremely well maintained for all of its paved length. The only drawback is crowds... More

Can be a bit crowded at times but it is a very pleasant trail. Yeah it starts down at Confluence Park but be aware that you can take it all the way out to Cherry Creek Reservoir.

This walking and biking path through Denver provides access to a large area surrounding the City of Denver. One part ride along Cherry Creek, one part urban experience, and further out you go you hit wildlife preserves. It's worth making time while in Denver to experience this beautiful trail.

Fantastic! Awesome trail for riding through Denver. Road the trail twice while getting adjusted to the altitude. Went over to Lookout Mountain and climbed it. What a lung buster for someone who lives at 400'. Denver is a fantastic destination for cycling.

This is an easy, scenic city trail with many options to visit local attractions, shop, and eat. It starts at REI (if you can leave the store) and goes for about 40 miles. This trail basically follows a river and takes you from downtown Denver to the Cherry Creek reservoir and beyond. It is very easy to do in short... More

Beautiful trail to ride your bike, walk your dog or just walk with friends!! It seems to go on forever!! So gorgeous in the fall with the golden Aspen colors coloring the trail. Creeks flowing freely across little bridges, and maybe even see someone painting picture!! So beautiful and worth the visit.

The Cherry Creek Trail is a neat way to explore the city. Hundreds of miles of trails in the bike trail system! You can bike from Parker Colorado all the way into downtown Denver! My favorite spot along the trail is REI, overlooking Confluence Park. A great place to grab a Starbucks and snack and soak in the view of... More
