I have a condo that is only a stones throw from here. I love to walk over and "people watch" on warm days. They also have regular events in the area that seems to really bring things to life.

This wonderful greenway provideds miles and miles of walking, running, and cycling fun. It can get a bit crowded, especially on warm, sunny days. If you are on a bicycle, be aware and keep your speed safe and controllable so as not to cause conflicts, but otherwise this is a lovely space taking you into the heart of Denver at... More

The bike/rec trail goes from C470 all the way to downtown and beyond. You can even circle the entire city and go past Cherry Creek Shopping center, down to Parker and back out to where you started via the C470 trail. Platte River Trail is really lovely with lots of trees in most parts and a number of wonderful places... More

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
