The Cherry Creek Trail is a 42-mile long paved pathway that travels from Downtown Denver, past Cherry Creek Reservoir, through Parker and ends at Franktown to the east of Castle Rock. The trail is located in the natural greenbelt alongside Cherry Creek as it meanders through the heart of the urban downtown area, goes through historic neighborhoods in the middle of Denver, goes past the suburban residential and commercial areas and eventually winds through high prairie grasslands and cottonwood groves.

The Cherry Creek Trail is a popular trail and is used by those commuting to work or to school, tourists taking in the sights and the locals getting some outdoor exercise. The trail connects to numerous other recreational trails along the way and is a portion of the Colorado Front Range Trail.

In the Downtown Denver area the trail starts at the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River at Confluence Park where it intersects the South Platte River Trail. The trail then follows the channel for the creek that forms a protective corridor as it goes past the busy downtown streets. Union Station,LoDo, the Auraria campus, Larimer Square, the Colorado Convention Center, the state capital building and numerous other attractions are located in this area. The trail then heads southeast going past the Denver Country Club and Cherry Creek Shopping Center. The trail then goes past Kennedy Golf Course and then climbs to tuck under Interstate 225 and then another climb over the dam for Cherry Creek Reservoir.

At the Cherry Creek State Park, there is a choice to go around the reservoir to the north or to the south. The trails meet up again at the south end of the reservoir. Farther south, the trail goes under E-470 and heads into the community of Parker. South of Parker the trail goes through more natural areas and ends to the southwest of the small community of Franktown.
