DENVER (CBS4)- Heavy rains on Wednesday have forced Denver Parks and Recreation to close some bike trails because of flooding.

The underpass of Platte Trail at Franklin Street and West Evans Blvd. were closed Wednesday because of it was under three feet of water.

Those trails are expected to remain closed until at least 6 a.m. Thursday. Users are being detoured around to clear crossings at both locations.

It was so deep in some areas that kayakers used the sidewalk as a ramp to get in and out of the water.

The Cherry Creek Trail around the mall is closed but users are urged to take the upper trail around the closure.

Other closures along the Cherry Creek Trail include: 1st Avenue closed to Downing; Broadway to the Bannock Street access ramp; Auraria access ramp to Larimer Street.

Those closures are expected to remain in place until 6 a.m. Thursday.
