Trail Description
About this trail
Although technically, this is a bike path, there are extended sections of singletrack that dart in and out of it with some surprisingly technical spots. For maximum singletrack/pavement ratio, start just south of the Holly intersection and look for the little paths that drop off the pavement towards the river. This place can get really busy so ride friendly! For people who live in Denver, this is an awesome place to go after work and hone your skills and have some fun, plus you can ride it for all but three or four months of the year. I\'m rating it as a 7 with the caveat that this is the highest rating I could ever give a city ride.

Review: Directions appear to be off. Just tried driving there and found myself at a light rail station and didn't see a trail anywhere near the address. Does anyone have an updated address to find the trail?

Review: A nice path ride when the Greenwood Village Mountain Bike Park is too muddy to ride.

Review: Good beginner track. Also good afterwork ride if limited on time. Small hill work and some good obstacles with the option to go around or over. Was not crowded at all on a 70 degree Saturday. Watch out for flying discs from disc golf course.

Review: Great Evening ride. Start near Holly, then dart off into some singletrack. Smooth riding, nothing technical. This was my first trail.

Review: The trail is very clean and also you can do a nice workout. If you like to ride in different roads this trail will be your best choice.

Review: This is the equestrian pathway that parallels the main paved trail. This is not a trail to drive to just to ride, but if you're in the aree, have your bike, and are bored...have at it. My work commute used to take me this way and on the way home I would drop off the paved trail and ride sections of this. There are some obstacles and technical sections and you can hop back onto the pavement at any time.

Review: This can really be quite entertaining at night, I only saw less than 10 other people two of which were bikers. most of the time your riding on about a 6' swath of paved trail, I only pulled out the flashlight a few times. when coming to the sections where you pass under bridges, otherwise ambient lighting is nearly enough if you enjoy that sort of thrill :) also if you end your ride around the reservoir keep your eyes out for a small herd of 4 mule deer bucks.

Review: This trail has some potential but it is terribly overgrown making visibility tough over a very large portion of this trail. This would not be an issue 99% of the time but this trail rides VERY close to some rather high ledges along the creek. Very sandy in spots and goatheads are everywhere; do not ride this trail without a pump and a patch kit.

Review: Nice wide concrete bike path with minimal street crossings from Cherry Creek Mall to Cherry Creek Reservoir. The reservoir end has a long climb (for the old people reading this). I rate it high for its 'easy' category. On weekends there are speed racers but the trail is wide enough to accomodate most everyone.
