DescriptionThis 30 mile multi-use trail runs along the South Platte River through Denver's Urban Landscape. This is a great trail to access if you live here or are visiting and staying in downtown Denver. Easily accessible from hotels in the downtown denver area from the 16th Street walking mall or Confluence Park off of 15th St. You will enjoy running, biking, walking, along the river while passing many Denver landmarks along the way ie: Confluence Park, REI Flagship Store, Riverside Cemetery, Hudson Gardens, etc. Beautiful views of the river, downtown cityscape, and the rockies.
