Denver Park Trails

Snow Removal

Off-Street Bicycle Trails
Denver Parks and Recreation maintains the City’s network of off-street bicycle trails. Any snow accumulation on a trail greater than one inch will be plowed to the channel side (or down slope side) within 12-hours after the end of a snow fall event.  Snow that can’t be accessed by machine will be removed manually. Ice accumulation on the trail will be treated with environmentally safe chemical products.

Snow Removal on Park Property/Other Public Property
Denver Parks and Recreation performs snow removal on park property and select sidewalks, such as bridges and underpasses. Snow is also removed from recreation center locations.


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 various 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.
