NEW SECTION ADDED: DENVER AREA GREENWAYS
A new section has been added to the menu at the top of the page. Under the "Denver Area" tab you'll now find a section for "Denver Area Greenways." This section provides hikes that follow the long, often paved, multi-use trails that crisscross the Denver Metro Area. These trails are a great resource for local hikes and walks in the winter and early spring and for those days where mountain adventure is just a bit out of reach. We hope you find these suggestions useful and enjoyable.
