This river goes through the best parts of Denver. It was easy to access from the 16th Street Mall through Larimer Square. It appears save and relatively flat. This would be a great place for a walk or run with visiting the Denver Area.

I ride my bike on this trail quite often. You can get anywhere in the city with this trail. It is a mostly flat trail.

We always hung out at the platte and rode our bikes from 120th to e-470. Nice ride, not much for places to stop for drinks but if you travel off of the path, you can find some great places.
