“Central & ride to all sides of Denver”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Central bike path understandably busy but connects to everywhere. My favorite is the Clear Creek trail to the North then west to Golden. Up Monument Hill for a climb or circle back through the new trail on 13th ave light rail. Easy connections to Chatfield or Cherry Creek Reservoir to the South.

“wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We are impressed by the whole thing. The path is divided into walkers and bikes and roller blades, so there is no yelling at walkers to get out of the way. It is clean and safe, and there are many little pavilions with sculptures and seating areas along the creek. I recommend bringing a picnic

“Bicyclists have no respect for pedestrians!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

In Colorado bicyclists believe they have the right-of-way over pedestrians. While mororists must yield at least 3' of clearence to bikes, bicyclists have no such responsibility to pedestrians. Bicyclists seem to consider pedestrians to be slolom flags at best and more typicaly as just a nusence. The high rate of speed, pack mentality, and disregard for the convience and safety of others make travel on this or any other so called "multiple use" trail a less than enjoyable experience.o

“Green Urban Bike Corridor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The greater Denver area has lots of paved bicycle paths thru greenways (typically following a creek). The Cherry Creek Bike Trail is one of the longest. It is downhill all the way from Cherry Creek Reservoir to Confluence Park. About 95% of this trail is thru a greenway beside the creek, with only a mile or so on City sidewalks. We take our bikes on the metro light rail out to the reservoir and ride back downtown. At Confluence Park, we can watch all the people sunbathing, jogging, walking dogs, or kayaking in the South Platte River from the Starbucks deck at REI.

“Best place to run in Denver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

As a runner, I've tried to run in a lot of downtown areas. Despite the altitude, I found the Cherry Creek bike path to be one of the best downtown running locations. At the north, and most crowded end, the runners/walkers and cyclists are separated, so you never feel you might get in an accident with a bike.
