Runners in Denver love the network of paved trails that run through the city, especially the sections that cruise through City Park and Washington Park. The City has preserved many of these areas so that it's easy to feel like you are in the wilderness despite being in the confines of a major metropolitan setting. The Cherry Creek Path and the South Platte bikeway are also great places to extend a run through the city. Cheesman Park and Sloan Lake are also great places to get in a good workout. The Highline Canal rounds out a collection of road running trails that give enough options to stay fit and healthy without ever leaving the city.
