Top 10 Denver Urban Hikes: First Creek at DEN

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

$10 – $15

Walk and Talk. 4 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 eighth walk in the series. One of Denver’s newest trails, we’ll explore the southern portion of Denver International Airport along First Creek next to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge. We may see bison, deer and bald eagles; we will definitely see prairie dogs, hawks, and maybe a coyote or two. This hidden gem on the way to the airport is a nice surprise for everyone who hikes it.
