Just because there was a little snow on the ground, I didn’t let that stop me from enjoying the trails. With trekking poles and hiking boots, I set off along the Cherry Creek Trail.
The Cherry Creek Trail, beginning in downtown Denver, is a 40-mile trail that connecting the city of Denver to Parker, Centennial and Franktown. A paved path beginning near the Platte River Trail and Confluence Park, the trail runs parallel with Cherry Creek through urban landscapes, parks and on into the suburbs. I followed the trail for about three miles beginning at Garland Park in Denver, going past the Four Mile House and Historic park and then on to the Cherry Creek Shopping District before I turned around and headed back.
