I ride my bike on this trail quite often. You can get anywhere in the city with this trail. It is a mostly flat trail.

We always hung out at the platte and rode our bikes from 120th to e-470. Nice ride, not much for places to stop for drinks but if you travel off of the path, you can find some great places.

This trail goes from north of Denver all the way to Chatfield Reservoir. It is well maintained and good for walking, biking, or blading. Good place to view all kinds of big birds, depending on the month.

You can ride your bike from the Confluence to the Englewood without any traffic or concern about car collisions. it's interesting to ride through the industrial areas and get a different view of the city.

This is a great, accessible river trail with plenty of stops for any interest. From Chatfield to Downtown and beyond, it's a great bike/hike.

I love riding along this path. It follows the Platte River from downtown to Chatfield Resevoir (15+ miles). Can be busy on the weekends.
