Why Denver By Foot?
Chris Englert could see the end of her Fortune 500 sales career. It was coming fast. Not sure what to do, she opened up a map of Denver and asked,
“I wonder where these trails go?” and then,
“Who else would want to know?”
So she started walking–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 her enthusiasm and creative energy. She’s inspired our patrons to get out and go. People ask for Chris all the time.” ~Lara, Denver Public Library Events
Soon, Chris had walked all of Denver’s 78 neighborhoods, explored over 200 of Denver’s parks, and hiked Denver’s regional trails. She soon realized that there was no good information about metro Denver and realized that Denver’s treasures needed sharing. Chris started to see how she could parlay her Fortune 500 sales and persuasion skills into motivating folks to discover Denver.
With over 100 walking maps of Denver here on DenverByFoot and three books in the Bookstore, you can find a way to get outside, on foot, in Denver. From urban hikes to day hikes to days in parks, Chris covers everything you would want to do, outside, and on foot in Denver.
And once you’ve exhausted Denver, Chris wants you to tackle a walking vacation.
