Mile High Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Denver’s newest footpath celebrates the city’s claim to fame: being 5,280 feet above sea level, or 1 mile high. The Mile High Loop was created as a way for pedestrians and runners to enjoy exercising along a trail that hits the elevation of 5,280 feet 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 one of the best views 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 another 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. Note: As with other park walks, be aware that this trail crosses roads within the park. Always cross roads cautiously because cars have access to the park as well."
