The Platte River Trail is just one of many of Denver's superb multi-use trails, this one stretching from just north and west of Englewood and heading north toward Henderson. The 30.3-mile trail follows the winding Platte River, coursing through Denver's urban landscape—including its industrial face—and incorporating high plains grassland landscapes with the Rockies as a backdrop. You will find bicycle traffic circles at trail intersections, as well as interpretive signs and nature areas along the route. There are cafes, memorials, botanical gardens and numerous parks, offering plenty to see and do. You can also stop and watch kayakers ply the Union Avenue boat chutes.
