The City and County of Denver has done a fantastic job putting together comprehensive Denver Colorado Trail maps to help guide you on your next outdoor adventure.
There are over 80 miles of urban trails throughout Denver, some following along waterways like the Cherry Creek or Platte River. Off-street trails are well-maintained and are available for use by walkers, runners, cyclists and more.
Denver Regional Trail Map: This map is a comprehensive guide to multi-use trails throughout the city. These trails are some of the most popular throughout the city and are well managed and cared for. Some even have snow removal during the winter!
As many of our favorite routes intersect with city streets, the City of Denver provides detours if any multi-use trails or bikeways are impacted by infrastructure improvements. Denver’s Construction Detour Standards explains in detail how urban trails may be detoured due to construction.
Visitors to trails located on the Denver Colorado Trail map must follow the rules and regulations outlined by the Denver City Park and Rec rules and regulations.
