Top 10 Denver Urban Hikes: Norfolk Glen

November 19, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

$10 – $15

Walk and Talk. 5 miles. Conversational Pace. Sidewalk and soft surface.

Come walk with the author in this Top 10 Denver Urban Hikes Series. On Mondays at 10:00 (see schedule below), we’ll walk 10 of the best hikes in the book, Best Urban Hikes: Denver, by Chris Englert. Each hike will meet at the specified trail head at 9:55, leaving no later than 10:05. All the hikes vary by length, so plan accordingly for your time.

This walk: This is the ninth walk in the series. Walking the Norfolk Glen Loop, you’re always within about a half mile of Colfax, but you’d never know it. This is a fun, historical walk where you’ll learn the history of the High Line Canal and walk along its banks. You’ll also find out who Mr Stark was–a fellow whose party atmosphere benefits us to this day–as we walk along the Sand Creek Greenway through Star K Ranch. We’ll mostly like see the resident deer population, see public art, cross the Triple Creek Trail head and have a blast on this perfect urban hike.
