An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Monday and Thursday, repeating until June 1, 2017
TYPE: W&T (repeating) | PACE: Conversational | TERRAIN: Some hills, paved & unpaved trails | DISTANCE: Approx. 2-5 mi |
Walk Description: Denver has 78 recognized neighborhoods, and we’re going to walk each one in alphabetical order from January to June on Mondays and Thursdays. Ranging from 2-5 miles, each walk will meander through the neighborhood, walking past relevant features of the neighborhood. Each time we get together, we will walk a new neighborhood. Each walk will loop for about 2-5 miles, mostly with designated routes, but we may veer off and explore as the neighborhood invites us to turn left or right. Your local knowledge of the neighborhood is welcomed.
Expect spontaneity, randomness, and possibly getting lost!
