About Biking Denver’s Cherry Creek Trail:
Just moments from Hotel Teatro, one of the top Accommodations in Denver’s Downtown area, you can escape to a lush bike path and getaway from the urban jungle for just a bit. The Cherry Creek Trail offers an experience in Denver that you simply must take in. Biking the Cherry Creek Trail is one of the top Activities in Denver for many of our Hotel Guests, and it’s a fun Thing to Do if you want to step out from your Hotel in Denver to surround yourself with views, greenery, and a little peace.

You have to see Denver from the Cherry Creek Train to really “see” Denver. We suggest that you start out from our Accommodations in Denver and head to Confluence Park, on the Platte River Trail. This path cuts through the heart of Denver and meanders all the way up to Cherry Creek Lake/ Reservoir. While you’re on the path, you’ll pass numerous Denver Attractions like Cherry Creek Mall, Four Mile Historic Park, Denver Sister City Parks, Denver Country Club, and Cherry Creek Country Club.

Why You Should Bike Denver’s Cherry Creek Trail:
You can enjoy biking the Cherry Creek Trail all by itself if you don’t feel like riding the entire 42-mile Northeast Denver Loop Trail that Cherry Creek Trail is part of. The Cherry Creek Trail is one of the most beautiful Denver Trails that showcases the charm of Denver, and it gives you a good look at all of the Denver suburbs.

Why not participate in one of the Activities in Denver that most residents have enjoyed and many Denver visitors put atop their “must-do” list? The Cherry Creek Trail is smooth and perfect for bike riding. It has quite a few exits that allow access to various parts of the city, and you’ll surely enjoy taking some pit stops in the lovely Denver Parks that surround the Trail.

Tips for Biking Denver’s Cherry Creek Trail:

  • If you don’t have a bike, you can rent one from Denver B-cycles at many locations in Denver, including the main rental kiosk at the Market Street Bus Station (16th and Market Streets). There is also a smaller kiosk at 15th and Delgany Streets.
  • Many Guests who stay at our Hotel in Denver just want to bike a small portion of the Cherry Creek Trail. We recommend that you at least ride as far as the Cherry Creek Dam to get the full Trail experience, but you can absolutely go further on either side of the reservoir.
  • There are some bathrooms within sight of the trail, but you may prefer to go while you’re still in our comfy Accommodations in Denver. If you do need to make a stop, look for some of the facilities that are in the parks and strung along the path.
  • Some of our Hotel Guests like to set out on the Trail in the morning, stopping by Tattered Cover Bookstore (2526 East Colfax, Denver, CO 80206. Tel: 303.322.7727) first to enjoy a coffee and snack before their ride.
