5 Shady Walks in Denver

5 Shady Walks in Denver, Denver, Colorado (B)

Hi everyone. I want to first start out by saying that this article is about Denver. Not Boulder. Not Colorado Springs. Not the Front Range. I’m a bit of a stickler for Denver. When I mean IN Denver, I mean IN Denver. The City and County of Denver (including the Denver Mountain Parks.) So when I search and find other people’s recommendations for hikes in Denver and they take me to Three Sisters, I get a bit annoyed.

I will also admit that “hiking in Denver” is more like walking or urban hiking. Since Denver is flat and most of the trails are concrete, people might argue that there is no hiking in Denver.

And, I will also admit that finding SHADE in Denver (without being in a park) is also a big challenge. We are, by the way, in the high prairie, and forests don’t come naturally here in the high plains. Thus, the best place to find shady places to walk in Denver would be the parks (Cheesman, City Park, Wash Park and Civic Park are great ones), but if you actually want to get some distance and feel like you’re hiking in Denver in the shade, you’ll need to be a bit creative. ......
