Leaving the Denver trail head, you’ll meander along Sand Creek right next to I270, but you’d never know it. You’ll see some interesting flood control infrastructure, pass by the historic Danish pig farm lots, pass the stormwater treatment facility, glimpse the edge of Riverview Cemetery, wave hello to Suncor, and end up at the confluence of the Platte River and the Sand Creek. Don’t let these landmarks fool you, there’s plenty to see and experience on the is segment, and its one that shouldn’t be missed.
