“It has been awesome hiking with Lisa and learning Denver’s history. Her dedication helped me complete all 14 segments of the High Line Canal Trail.” ~ Sandy


Why Denver By Foot?

Founder Chris Englert, upon ending her Fortune 500 sales career and not sure what to do, opened up a map of Denver and asked herself, “I wonder where these trails go?” Then she thought, “Who else would want to know?” So she started walking as a way to help heal her transition from corporate life, to discover Denver, and to get outside. The walking started with urban hikes on Denver’s trails, then lead to walks in the neighborhoods which opened up questions about Denver’s parks.


“We’ve loved how Lisa inspires us to get out and explore the many treasures in Denver and beyond.” ~ Mary, Centennial
