Mile High Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Denver’s newest footpath celebrates the city’s claim to fame: being 5,280 feet above sea level, or one mile high. The Mile High Loop was created in 2009 as a way for pedestrians and runners to enjoy exercising along a trail that hits the elevation of 5,280 feet four times throughout City Park. The graveled path takes you past lakes, ponds, fountains, playgrounds, statues, gardens, and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and features the best view of the Rocky Mountains in the city. The Mile High Loop is certainly not the only path in City Park, and while it traverses paved roads and bicycle paths, it provides a fresh way for even locals to enjoy Denver’s largest park. The time of day and the seasons will affect what you can see along the way—from blossoming trees to an electric light fountain and much more."
