Morrison Rd Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is a unique southwest Denver metro loop starting from Morrison, ridden almost entirely on fully separated multiuse paths (MUPs). This loop is almost entirely car-free. That’s a happy thought. Remember though that bike paths like these are actually bicycle-pedestrian paths on which the pedestrians always have the right-of-way.Over the decades the idea of separate facilities for cyclists has been a serious point of contention within the cycling community.To some, the very concept of a separate facility for bicyclists, whether it be a painted line on the street or some kind of bicycle-pedestrian path, is something to be fought against tooth and nail. The proliferation of separate facilities, they say, is a sign of the end-times for cyclists’ right to the roadways. To some others, who never want to ride their bikes on the streets in the first place, the thought of separate facilities fills them with joy and comfort."
