Pair your Adventure and your Appetite in Denver

Denver's eats are as good as its trails. Enjoy the best of both by hiking or biking to a picnic spot, restaurant, or brewery.

Description

Downtown and the greater metropolitan have many famous restaurants, cafes, and breweries as well as underrated joints awaiting discovery.

This list is all about excellent places to eat and drink. It includes trails with quiet picnic areas, hikes that end at a restaurant or brewery, and an urban greenway among all the culinary offerings of downtown. Food is essential for an active day out, and luckily there's no shortage of activities or eateries around Denver.
