thousands of folks enjoy this resource, so it's very crowded on nice days, but it's a fab resource and connects to many other trails. Always want more trails to keep us fit! Just be away to obey the rules on right of way. I'm still recovering from a guy pulling a kiddie trailer on his bike on a blind corner,... More

Even though its completely busy, I recommended going on the weekends. Take your bike (or rent one of the B Cycle bikes) and bike along the path to the convergence of the two rivers. There are some restaurants nearby for lunch/brunch and people watching. Loved seeing the dogs playing in the water!

Hundreds of miles of walking and biking await you on this gorgeous green way! Thank heavens elected officials & philanthropists worked together to create this tremendous community asset. From Confluence Park in every direction, fun is available!

What a nice way to spend the day riding on the bike path and taking a lunch with you. I love to watch the kayakers on the Platte.

Attended the first annual Coors Light South Platte River Festival 2013. Free music & paddle board races were the highlights. Great place for biking or walking. Rental of kayaks & tubes available. Nice green foliage and river in midst of urban environment.

This greenway goes all the way from the C470 path south in Littleton up to the north in Adams county and is very scenic along much of it.

Okay so this is not the Elroy-Sparta trail or the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Highway Trail, but this is a great Denver urban bike trail if you want to stay in town and do some riding without having to stop for traffic every few minutes. We try to do at least one 20 mile loop mostly on this trail every... More

The South Platte River runs through Denver - for much of its length skirted on one or both sides by Interstate 25, other roads, and railways. The bike-jogging-walking trail running along lengthy (~30 miles) portions of it. It has diverse scenery, from grubby to very nice - all of it interesting to the visitor wanting a walk, or renting a... More

Get your friends and family on the move. Great energy on the bike path. Enjoy the great trail and the people watching. Go to the river and watch the follies in the river.

Starting at 104th or 120th Streets in Thornton, a few miles north of Denver, just east of I-25 (maps of the trail and tangential systems are available on line), you ride/skate/walk along the river for a few miles until you reach a fork. South on the Greenway takes you to downtown Denver, past the oldest cemetary in the city. West... More
