The suburbs west of Denver are blessed with several different urban trails for walking/bicycle riding in a scenic natural environment which is conveniently acccessible to area residents after work and on weekends. West Denver Activities (formerly West Denver Trails) is a place for users of these trails to meet while enjoying these trails and experiencing others that they may not normally use. The organizer is familiar with trails from Westminster to Littleton, and hopes other members will add their experience and ideas to the group. Other activities may include hiking and even snowshoeing along trails in the foothills and mountains of the Front Range.
"West Denver" was originally defined for the purposes of this group as roughly from the west side of Denver (i.e. Broadway) to the start of the foothills (e.g. Golden), and Westminster to Littleton. This has been expanded to include the foothills and mountains to the west of Denver (Front Range), up to selected 13,000 and 14,000 foot peaks. The latter hikes/snowshoeing may be strenuous, and those participating must be adequately prepared.
Dog policy: Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on leash at all times and be able to interact well with people and other animals. Note: Some places may not allow dogs e.g. some nature reserves.
The West Denver Activities group will not start a hike/ride until the leader of that particular meetup has showed up, and a 15 minute grace period will generally be allowed for latecomers.
DISCLAIMER: While urban trails are relatively gentle, there is always some risk inherent in any outdoor activities, and hiking and snowshoeing in the foothills and mountains can be strenuous. Group members should be prepared for any activities that they participate in, as West Denver Activities cannot accept liability for injury or illness incurred during these activities.
