Cherry Creek Path named as one of USA Today’s Top Urban Bike Paths

Cherry Creek Bike Path—Denver: The standout (among many in this city) is the Cherry Creek Path, which extends from the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River in downtown, all the way to Cherry Creek Reservoir 12 miles to the southeast. Due to its central location, smooth grading and infrequent intersections, the path is practically a commuter highway from Aurora and points in between. But lest the h-word scare anyone, Cherry Creek is also known for its natural beauty.  Flickr/danlong

Here in Cherry Creek North, we already know our own Cherry Creek Trail is one of the best ways to see the sights of our beautiful city, wether on a bike or à pied.  Now, USA Today has told the world of our charming path, voting it one of the countries Top Urban Bike Paths.

Here’s what they have to say…

“Denver’s numerous paved bike paths extend citywide and beyond, earning the Mile High City annual props on Bicycling Magazine‘s bike-friendly cities list. The standout (among many) is the Cherry Creek Path, which extends from the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River in downtown, all the way to Cherry Creek Reservoir 12 miles to the southeast—you can keep going for dozens of miles in either direction if you want, though, since it connects with other trails. Due to its central location, smooth grading and infrequent intersections, the path is practically a commuter highway from Aurora and points in between. But lest the h-word scare anyone, Cherry Creek is also known for its natural beauty.”

The only thing missing from this glowing review is mention of the best place to stop for lunch… Cherry Creek North!
