The 1.7-mile natural surface loop trail is suitable for hiking, mountain biking, and trail running. The bike park is designed to entertain and chal- lenge visitors of all ages and abilities. Come bring your family and friends. Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) owes an enormous thank you to the Walton Family Foundation, whose generous gift of $500,000 made this project possible. DPR is also deep- ly indebted to the volunteers who keep park facilities attrac- tive and in excellent condition, and we look forward to more generous volunteer contribution to come with the Ruby Hill bike park. In the coming months and years, DPR will be conducting various volunteer projects to build new ‘gateway’ bike skills features along the loop trail. And watch for new opportunities in the years to come. By Jason Himick Denver Parks and Recreation Keepitsafe,keepitfun... Here’swhatyouneedtoknow: One of the easiest ways to contribute to keeping this new facility safe and enjoyable for everyone is self-regulation by the bike community. Although DPR staff will do their best to inform the community about riding etiquette, it is tremendously helpful when more experienced riders help educate new riders and set good examples to follow. A few helpful tips on how riders can police one another: Avoid riding while trails are still wet. Riding on wet and muddy trails can significantly damage the surface of the dirt trails and features. All riders should encourage each other to ride safely and respectfully. Riders who take unnecessary risks, engage in unsafe behavior, or ride too aggressively endanger themselves and others. Protect our park. Riding off trails, damaging trees, littering, graffiti or vandalism, and harassing wildlife should be strongly discouraged by everyone who enjoys any of Denver’s public parks. The bike park will be open from sunrise to sunset daily, every day of the year, and will only close due to weather, poor trail conditions, or maintenance needs.
