Denver offers more than 80 miles of off-street, multi-use trails within city limits. Most trails follow urban waterways, offering safe and scenic routes through various neighborhoods. These trails provide recreational opportunities and supplement Denver's on-street grid bicycle route system.
For the safety and enjoyment of all users, please follow trail rules and etiquette:
- Speed limit: 15 MPH (as conditions allow—slow down if necessary!)
- Yield when entering the trail
- Yield to pedestrians
- Do not stop in travel lanes
- Stay to the right; announce to pass on the left
- Turn lights on after sundown
- Always wear a helmet!
- Do not occupy more than half the width of the trail, either single-vehicle or side-by-side
- Call 311 (720.913.1311) to report incidents, camps, crashes & concerns
Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) is developing a plan for amenities along our trails, such as benches, water fountains, trash cans and more. The plan will develop guidelines for how often and where these amenities should be located along the trail system in Denver and is intended to be an internal guiding document to support decision-making when funding for trail amenities becomes available. Providing your input now will help direct how trail amenities are implemented in the future.
Survey closed on June 15th: DPR launched an interactive map to gather input on what amenities people wanted across our trail system, which was open from April through June 15. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
