Trails

June 7, 2022: Expect delays on the South Platte River Trail near 13th Avenue. Portions of the trail will undergo construction and have cones and flaggers present on Tuesday, June 7. 

Denver offers more than 80 miles of off-street, multi-use trails within city limits. Most trails follow urban waterways, offering safe and scenic routes through various neighborhoods. These trails provide recreational opportunities and supplement Denver's on-street grid bicycle route system.
