Some lovely trails in the heart of the city. Accessible to all. Some areas seemed better than others.... There are some very interesting old brick buildings along the route in this old part of the city. I enjoyed a walk with my husband in the middle of the day. I'm not sure that I would be comfortable in this area... More

We walked along this very cool urban river and even put in a toe at confluence park. But, there was a lot broken glass, hubcaps and other urban detritis in the river - not for the barefoot or small children. The bike and walking trails along it were fantastic - a fun nature walk in the city.

I brought my bike out for the length of time I was inDenver and this was a highlight of my trip. There are seemingly endless miles of trails that I wish I could have explored them all.

We told a walk along the platte river which was still running high. There are plaques along the path explains the history of the area which is interesting. You do have to watch for the bikes that sneak up behind you so you don't walk into them. We ended up at Confluence park where you usually see kayakers but there... More

I really enjoy doing a ride or rollerblade on this trail. I try to hit it after 4pm on the weekends, so I have a bit more room to move. It takes you north and south in Denver, and it's possible to do a decent distance on this trail. It follows the Platte River and is quite scenic in most... More

The greenway has many other trails it connects to, making it a favorite among locals. I can ride my bike downtown and have lunch or attend a sporting event and take the light rail back. Aspen Grove/Mineral Station and Downtown Littleton are popular spots along the greenway that intersect closely to each other. If you are training for any event,... More

The best water way I have seen. One of the best place I have ever seen. Such a beauty of water flow and thrilling experience.

Trail close to hotel, but many sites to enter it. It followed the South Platte River. Scenic walking, linked with quite a few parks for people to stop and rest or eat. Good way to exercise in the heart of the city.

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!
