One loop around the park is 2.5 miles, and entire course is approximately 6 miles. Runners/walkers may turn around at any point and head back. The course includes city streets and sidewalks until reaching Washington Park where runners use a dirt trail course around the park. Walkers head towards Cheesman Park for a brisk stroll of 2 times around the edge of the park taking in the beauty of the front range mountains in the distance (approx. 3.2 miles). Runners who prefer a shorter run with less street running may also run Cheesman Park.
