Greetings! We have a one-of-a-kind fun, historical and reflective 18-20 mile walking experience to and from downtown Golden, Colorado to downtown, Denver ~ all in one day! We will move through open space, suburban, and urban environments with plenty of shade and snack breaks. There will be reflective, historical, and pedestrian mobility storytelling with safe and comfortable walking trip facilitation the whole way through. We will take the West Rail back to Golden after our walk.
These ‘Camino en Colorado’ long-distance walking experiences are inspired by the 490 pilgrim/walking path that moves along Northern Spain. People have been walking “the Camino” since the 9th Century. Learn more about the Camino de Santiago by visiting the American Pilgrims on the Camino website. These 1-3 day Colorado walking excursions embed a variety of practices and intentions around moving through places, spaces, and land by foot while also being encouraged and prompted to go inward. You will also build one of a kind friendships and connections that can only be found by moving alongside one another and sharing meals together. While these routes have a very different historical and spiritual nature in comparison to the Camino de Santiago in Spain, the opportunity to create similar practice in our own community, city, and state can be profound.
