Hi there! I live downtown, but I'm looking for people to walk with too. I was hoping to do a "Walk & Talk" with lots of people, but didn't get much interest. Maybe we could start one up!

Also, here's a tool I've found to be pretty handy with mapping my walks and miles: http://www.mapmyhike.com/routes/create/

Hope to hear from you soon. Welcome to Colorado!

MapQuest? Thats so 90's. Are you still using AOL too? Just kidding.

Im close to Lakewood. But I usually go east when I walk. I have done a few walks through Lakewood in Belmar Park, and Bear Creek Valley. If you want some really good routes, check out my Facebook below. I post all of em there. There about 40 or 50 or so.

If you want routes directly in your area. Just go to Google Maps. Type in your zip code. After it zooms in to your area. Select bicycles under the labels tab. This will show you all the bicycle routes in your area. The routes in dark green are dedicated trails that have no motor vehicle access. Thats what you want. They are shared by bicyclers, runners, walkers, etc.

Hope this helps. You'll have to wait till it warms up though. Because Im willing to bet we wont see another day like today for a long time. emoticon

I have just moved to Lakewood about 4 months ago from the Seattle area. I am looking for a walking partner. I don't know my way around that good yet, but that is what map quest is for right?

If you like working out outdoors. Walking, running, biking, etc. Check out my links below for routes that I have walked and run in Denver. The best thing about Denver is that we have an abundance of trails that go in and out of the city. You can workout everyday for a month straight and never take the same route twice. And its all free. If you wanna go for a walk or run one day. Ill be glad to.

Denver also has low cost gym memberships through the city's Parks & Recreations department. These gyms are run by the city and only cost between $55 to $100 for the entire year.

You will love Denver. There is an infinite amount of things to do in this beautiful city.

I'm not new to Spark but I am new to Denver. I'd love to find someone to workout with, or get any ideas of where I can find someone. For this being such a big city there's gotta be someone/something here.
