Because of its proximity to the mountains, and generally sunny weather, Denver has gained a reputation as being a very active, outdoor oriented city. Many Denver residents spend the weekends in the mountains; either skiing in the winter or hiking, climbing, kayaking and camping in the summer. The city offers over 80 miles of trails and mountain parks, providing ample opportunity for walking, running, hiking and riding. Colorado’s broader outdoor culture has helped keep its obesity rates lower than most of the nation, and the city’s efforts are a great sign that urban walking can make a big comeback.
