  • Fun park in the foothills to hike. I highly recommend it, but it gets hot so don't forget your water bottle. 
  • Excellent for a day hike with great views. Though the bikers are sometimes a problem as they come down the trail crazy fast and sometimes it is scary to try to get out of the way in time. I am sure th...  read more »
  • Beautiful park with even better views. The trails aren't too difficult and they definitely provide a workout. You're able to see Denver from certain elevations as well. 
  • Deer Creek Park is a great place to go for a Mt. Bike ride, a trail run, or a walk through the woods. There is definitely some climbing in the first couple of miles, so be prepared. Dogs are welcome, but keep them on a leash and under control, especially around mountain bikes. There are ~13 miles of trail within this area including 2 loops and 2 out and back look out points. The views are amazing. In the summer, like anywhere in the foothills, you must keep an eye out for rattlesnakes. The trails go from really nice and smooth dirt trails to rocky and rugged in a few places. Get out an enjoy!
  • This is a really wonderful trail. It has to options that eventually work through and come together a couple miles in. There is some challenging up hill walks that can wear you out pretty quick. There is the peaceful sound of the creek that runs next to the trail. It is a heavy traffic trail, so unless you go off on to one of the side trails, you will not have much of the trail to yourself during the peak of the days.
  • It is very well marked woth signage on the mpuntain bike trails, however the lack of singletrack that i located was not ideal.
  • Heading up Meadowlark trail the views are fantastic. The trip down the opposite side of the mountain is a waterfall wonderland and yes, the trails do stay on the wet side often due to the waterfalls but worth every step. (and the park provides boot brushes at the end of your hike). During the week trails are pretty empty as there were times I didn't see anyone for 30 or more minutes. Just lovely!
  • Beautiful and well kept.. Will absolutely be back here. Went for a 7.3 mile hike today... Took roughly 3 hours.
