Highline Canal Trail bicycle ride, Denver, Sun. Oct. 14 at 10 AM

Bicycle from the Mamie D. Eisenhower Park in Denver along the Highline Canal Trail to James A Bible Park.  A lovely trail with nice fall colors as well.

Mamie D. Eisenhower Park is at S. Colorado Blvd. and E. Dartmouth Ave.

After returning to the Mamie Eisenhower Park, those that would like to go further could ride the Highline Canal trail through Cherry Hills Village to the south and then back. It's a wealthy area with big open spaces and excellent views, though the trail is gravel through there.

This is another map link:

Make sure to bring enough water and perhaps a lunch/food as well as the trail may not be convenient to places to eat.

My cell phone number is (720) 626-1546.

Look for me with a small Colorado flag to help identify the meetup group.

More details to follow.

    We ended up riding the Highline Canal trail all the way from the Eisenhower Park to Havana St. on the east side of Denver (where it borders on Aurora). Thanks to those who came. I've just created another meetup for a bike ride on Saturday for the part of the trail through Cherry Hills and Greenwood Village.

      I didn't arrive in time to ride with the group, but I ended up following the same route to Havana St. It was a wonderful ride. However, I spent a lot of time repairing flats--I wasn't prepared for all the stickers/goatheads on the path. Western Oregon, where I've done most of my riding, doesn't have tube-puncturing stickers. I'll be better prepared next time. :-)

    Also, it is recommended to bring sufficient water and food as it may not be convenient to get to a place to eat.

    I've had another idea for once we get to the James A Bible Park. If we head back to the Mamie Eisenhower Park instead, then those that would like to go further could ride the Highline Canal trail through Cherry Hills Village to the south and then back. It's a wealthy area with big open spaces and excellent views, though the trail is gravel through there.

    I think it's about 10 to 15 miles to the James Bible Park and back, and it's mostly level with minor ups and downs.

    How far is this ride?
    What is the elevation?

    There is also a nice gravel trail through Cherry Hills Village and Greenwood Village to the south that could be nice for another day.
