Denver Bike Paths Bike Year Round
Hop on Your Bike for Miles and Miles
CHERRY CREEK BIKE PATH
This paved trail begins where Denver was first founded and runs along the creek for more than 40 miles to Franktown. The Cherry Creek Bike Path is one of the most popular bike/hike/jogging trails in Denver and one of the prettiest. Parts of it comprise the Front Range Trail, an off-road bike path that will eventually stretch the entire north-south length of Colorado, from the Wyoming border to New Mexico. Hop on the path in LODO or Cherry Creek Shopping Center, bike past Four Mile House & Historic Park and loop Cherry Creek State Recreation Area. From the southern end of the Cherry Creek bike path, just a few miles on a quiet dirt road you will arrive at Castlewood Canyon State Park.
CLEAR CREEK BIKE PATH
The Clear Creek Bike Path is a 20-mile long paved bike path that follows fast rushing Clear Creek from the South Platte River to the town of Golden. The path goes through residential neighborhoods and countryside, but is always near the creek. As it nears Golden, it offers outstanding views of the high buttes that surround the town. When you arrive in Golden visit the award-winning kayak course that runs through the center of the town and have a beer while kayaks float by. There are historic buildings located directly on the bike path, while Coors Brewery, the largest single brewing site in the world, is nearby.
BEAR CREEK BIKE TRAIL
Bear Creek Bike Trail is a 20-mile trail that follows Bear Creek from the South Platte River to the tiny mountain town of Morrison - gateway to the Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre. You can challenge yourself biking through Red Rock looping around the roads getting to the amphitheater. From here, there are paved bike trail links along C-470 that connect to Chatfield State Recreation Area in the south or Golden in the north, making it possible to make 40-60 mile loops from downtown Denver.
