walking denver

Its mild climate and abundant sunshine make Denver, one of America's fittest cities, a welcoming place for a walk any time of year. Colorado's capital is the country's fifth most walkable city. There is so much to see when out for a stroll through downtown or a hike in the nearby foothills. Walking Denver explores the best of the city from Dinosaur Ridge and Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre to the Mile High Loop in City Park and public art scattered throughout downtown.

These 30 specially designed urban treks are not only good exercise but are a great way to soak up the history, culture, parks, and vibe of the Mile High City. The walk's commentary includes trivia about architecture, local culture, and neighborhood history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, or shop. Each tour includes a clear neighborhood map and vital public transportation (where appropriate) and parking information. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a "Points of Interest" section lists each walk's highlights.

"Denver literary guide Mindy Sink wrote for the New York Times for more than ten years of her writing career, but it is her Denver home that she returns to most often in her books. Last year, Sink exercised her feet and her time researching the city's best walks for her latest book, Walking Denver, a list of thirty walks that venture from the heart of Denver up into the foothills."

"Mindy’s clear and entertaining guide shows that she not only walked all of these routes (which I know is a fact!) but also she walked the routes with families and entertainment in mind."
