With a home base at TriVista Apartments, you’re perfectly positioned to enjoy the great outdoors in and around Denver, Colorado: one of the best cities in the country for outdoor recreation and nature appreciation. The ongoing COVID-19 crisis highlights the value of getting fresh air and exercise for both physical and emotional well-being. It also, of course, still requires us all to follow social distancing guidelines. 

Fortunately, Denver’s parks, greenspaces, and extensive public lands in the city’s big backyard provide plentiful opportunities for TriVista residents to get outdoors while maintaining adequate space from others. Here are five outdoor activities you can pursue while soaking up the luxurious modern living at this top-notch Denver apartment community! (Just remember to stay up-to-date regarding closures, restrictions, and other COVID-related developments.)

Walking & Hiking

Opportunities to take a stroll or an all-out hike while social distancing abound when TriVista is your H.Q. You’ve got direct access to the 40-mile Cherry Creek Trail, a paved multi use path running between nearby Confluence Park and Franktown, Colorado. Both along this trail and off it, you have nearly 20,000 acres of Denver’s city parks to enjoy. Also close by are the lovely plant-scapes of the Denver Botanical Gardens, a magical place to stroll.

Heading into the Front Range foothills just west of town and the high country beyond, you’ve got endless opportunities for Rocky Mountain trekking: from a climb up Green Mountain in Hayden Park to rambles in the rugged wonderland of Clear Creek Canyon.

Biking

The Cherry Creek Trail’s 40 miles offer incredibly convenient cycling within a stone’s throw of TriVista Apartments. You’ve got plenty of other awesome pedaling available right in the city at spots such as Sloan Lake and Washington Park. Then there are the miles of mountain-biking trails in the foothills!

Wildlife Watching

The Denver metro area enjoys one of the nation’s largest urban wildlife refuges: the 15,000-acre Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. Its short-grass and mixed-grass prairie, woods, and wetlands play host to a rich variety of native Great Plains and Front Range critters. Whether hiking its trails or taking the Wildlife Drive auto tour, you’ve got the opportunity to spot everything from bald eagles, burrowing owls, and waterfowl to mule and white-tailed deer, coyotes, prairie dogs, black-footed ferrets, and bison.

Fishing

If you’ve got an angling bent, TriVista puts you close to some world-class fishing within Denver’s spectacular hinterland. Less than an hour west into the Rockies, you’ve got the trout-rich waters of Clear and Boulder creeks, for example, where you can cast for beautiful brookies and rainbows. Fly fishing’s a great social distancing activity—and calming as they come!

Rock Climbing

With a little planning and diligence, you can tap into the Denver area’s outstanding rock climbing while still adhering to social distancing protocol. Whether you’re a newbie or an experienced cragger, spots such as Golden Cliffs and Clear Creek Canyon offer wonderfully accessible routes within easy reach of downtown.

Enjoy Denver’s Parks & Nearby Wildlands While Social Distancing

We’ve barely scratched the surface when it comes to outdoor activities in and around the Mile High City, most of which are still possible in one form or another under COVID-19 restrictions. 

Savoring exceptional amenities such as stainless-steel appliances and your own private balcony or patio at TriVista, you’ll find yourself with just about endless options for outdoor recreation and exercise. Get out there and enjoy yourself while staying safe and responsible!
