Denver's best parks for bicycling
Just atop Capitol Hill sits Cheesman Park, a lovely green field nestled merely a few blocks east of downtown Denver. The bike path is a simple up and down trail that only runs 1.6 miles, but the altitude change is pretty strong for such a short track. It's an easy ride with great places to stop to enjoy scenery of our city.

The Confluence Park run on the Cherry Creek trail is pretty short at just one mile, but that mile offers the rider an easy run up the river. Starting at the flagship REI location, Confluence Park is the meeting of two rivers, and often the final destination for many riding on the Cherry Creek trail. Don't get to excited though, the signs posted all over the park warn riders, and families for that matter, that the water is probably toxic, and may rot your skin right off your body.
