Denver Park Trails

PLEASE NOTE: Starting June 22, Staff at Cherry Creek Dam and Chatfield Reservoir have increased release rates, causing water levels along S. Platte River and Cherry Creek Trails to run even higher than usual. Low lying segments of trails will likely have water on them during Bike to Work Day festivities and the following days. Due to these wet conditions plus expected heavy trail use, we urge both bikers and pedestrians to use caution!

Denver offers more than 80 miles of off-street multi-use trails within the City. Most trails follow Denver’s urban waterways offering safe and scenic routes through urban neighborhoods. These trails provide recreational opportunities for walking, running, cycling, and skating supplementing the on-street grid bicycle route system throughout the City.

Regional Trails extend beyond the Denver City Limits and were designed to serve and connect the greater metro area to Denver’s urban core. Trail segments and mileage listed below are primarily shown for areas within Denver. For more information about regional trails outside of Denver please visit the local municipality’s website.
