LoHi Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The neighborhood to the west of downtown is commonly called the Highlands, but it is actually a blend of historic towns and communities that were founded independently of one another and served as home for various immigrant populations over the years. The name “LoHi” is a popular nickname for Lower Highlands, but it is not an official district name. This walk takes you from historic “North Denver” beginning on Platte Street and up through what was once the town of Highland and then clips the edge of the Potter-Highlands district.

Today an old mortuary building has been turned into a home for popular restaurants, and the entire walk is sprinkled with good eats. While noshing, consider discussing the unique history of this former town whose leaders strove to make this a puritanical Eden with limits on everything from kite flying to alcohol (liquor licenses were a prohibitive $5,000 annual fee) and more in keeping with their strict moral code. I think they might approve of the ice cream parlors of today though, so go enjoy your dessert."
