Outdoor Adventures


You can enjoy a wide array of outdoor adventures all year-round when you visit Denver. From skiing and snowboarding in the winter to hiking in the summer, Denver is a four-season playground.


Start by exploring the city’s many paved trails, which are ideal for walking, cycling, roller blading and jogging. The Bear Creek Bike Trail, the South Platte River Trail and the Cherry Creek Trail are just a few of the many routes you can explore throughout the metro area. 


From there, move on to hiking trails, which provide a slightly more rugged experience. The best hiking trails are just a short drive from downtown, like those at Barr Lake State Park, Mount Galbraith Park and Mount Falcon Park.


Want to hit the links? Grab your clubs and head to one of Denver’s many sunny golf courses, like Wellshire Golf Course and Overland Park Golf Course


And if you’ve got little ones with you, spend the afternoon playing mini-golf. You’ll have a blast as a family at spots like Holey Moley Golf Club or Puttshack, among others.


Most of the best downhill skiing in Colorado can be found in the Rocky Mountains, with some resorts just an hour’s drive from downtown Denver. But if you don’t want to leave town, consider cross-country skiing during the next snowstorm. You can glide around on skinny skis at any of Denver’s public parks. And if you want to work on your downhill skiing and snowboarding tricks, head to the Rail Yard at Ruby Hill Park, a terrain park featuring man made snow and lots of different features, like rails and boxes.


Pickleball has taken the nation by storm—and Denver is the perfect place to work on your dinks. There are outdoor courts at many city parks, including Northfield Athletic Complex and Skyland Park And if you want to level-up your game, consider taking a lesson at spots like Gates Tennis Center and Simms Street Recreation Center.
