“The C-470 follows the ring freeway around southwest Denver, tying together many of the paths and trails in the region.”— jeff parker
From Chatfield Reservoir, you can chose to enjoy the state park there, or exit at nearby Deer Creek Canyon Road where you can access the nearby Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield farm, Hildebrand Open Space (where the Black Bear Trail starts off), or the nearby Deer Creek Canyon and South Valley Open Spaces.
Or continue along the C-470 path as it sweeps north along the freeway headed for Bear Creek Regional Park, Mt. Falcon, Green Mountain, Red Rocks, Dakota Ridge, and Mathews/Winters open spaces. The path ultimately ends at Rooney Road near Green Mountain. From there, you can continue north under I-70 on moderately busy Rooney (which is heavily used by cyclists) to the paths that begin at US-40 and follow US-6 into Golden.
