Publisher Comments:

Its mild climate and abundant sunshine make Denver, one of Americaand#8217;s fittest cities, a welcoming place for a walk any time of year. Coloradoand#8217;s capital is the countryand#8217;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. This exceptional guide 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 walkand#8217;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 and#147;Points of Interestand#8221; section lists each walkand#8217;s highlights.

Insider Mindy Sink guides the urban adventurer from the Mile High Loop, the cityand#8217;s newest footpath in City Park, to the Golden Triangleand#8217;s cultural and architectural gems, and the ever lively Art District on Santa Fe. From the Auraria Campus (home to three universities), to the cityand#8217;s oldest still operating cemetery, this book reveals part of the city even seasoned locals overlook.
