New spot, good quality. Can be really popular on Friday and Saturday nights, and they don't answer the phone for take-out if they get too busy. But you can walk over, put your order in, and grab a drink at the bar (or pick up ice cream from Sweet Cow) while you wait.

The trail is actually a service road for Denver Water, so it is wide and flat. There are picnic spots along the way. At the end it hooks up to the Colorado Trail. Great for kids, bikers, fisherman, and those who are looking for a less vigorous hike.
