Hello! Welcome to Denver By Foot

Our mission is to help you discover Denver by foot.

With over 300 parks, 78 neighborhoods, hundreds of hikes and walks and dozens of regional trails, the City and County of Denver await you.

Just open the front door and start exploring. Your city is waiting for you.

Denver’s outdoors aren’t up in the mountains, they’re right here in metro Denver. Don’t have time to drive 90 minutes to a trailhead along the Front Range? There’s plenty to do right here in metro Denver.

Dive into Denver By Foot. It’s more than a walk in the park. It’s a lifestyle.

Why Denver By Foot?

Chris Englert could see the end of her Fortune 500 career. It was coming fast. Not sure what to do, she opened up a map of Denver and asked,

“I wonder where these trails go?” and then,

“Who else would want to know?”

So she started walking–to help heal her transition from corporate life, to discover Denver, and to get outside.

The walking started with urban hikes on Denver’s trails, then lead to walks in the neighborhoods which opened up questions about Denver’s parks.

Soon, Chris had walked all of Denver’s 78 neighborhoods, explored over 200 of Denver’s parks, and hiked Denver’s regional trails. She soon realized that there was no good information about metro Denver and realized that Denver’s treasures needed sharing.

With over 100 walking maps of Denver here on DenverByFoot and three books in the Bookstore, you can find a way to get outside, on foot, in Denver. From urban hikes to day hikes to days in parks, Chris covers everything you would want to do, outside, and on foot in Denver.

And once you’ve exhausted Denver, Chris wants you to tackle a walking vacation.
