My favorite afternoon run loop.

This park is an amazing loop for a 2.6 mile run or walk. Very flat, so good for roller skating or biking, too. A good leisure recommendation is that you find a shady spot under a tree and pack a picnic or watch the sunset. With views of the Denver skyline on the east side of the lake and views of the mountains on the west side of the lake, you can't go wrong. Enjoy!!

There are a lot of pho restaurants on Federal. Don't worry about trying the others... we already did that on your behalf. Pho 95 is the BEST. Super friendly and are offering take away during covid. Call ahead to order and check when they are closing for the evening, it varies.

Best Indian, Nepalese and Tibetan food!! It's delicious, affordable and everyone is so friendly. The location in Arvada is about a 15 minute drive from the house, and very worthwhile. They are offering to-go food during Covid-19, along with their in house "Spice Trade Beer Co."! I love their Butter Chicken spice level 3 or 4, paired with Himalayan IPA, but I'm not trying to tell you what to order.... hint hint wink wink.

Biggest whiskey list in the country!! Over 1,600 whiskeys paired with a hearty comfort food menu to soak up the booze. Fear not if you're anti-whiskey, they have a killer cocktail and beer list, too. Worth the 15 minute drive, or you can take the W line to the G line and ride the RTD through Union Station easy peasy. Olde Town Arvada is very cute!!

After your second walk around Sloan's Lake, hit up this restaurant for authentic Fish & Chips you'll find in America. The batter is light and crispy and fries are bountiful. Enjoy!

Hiking/Trail Running

Apex is a "choose your own adventure" trail. There are plenty of forks in the trail to make the hike or run as long or short as you want. Great parking and facilities at the bottom, decent elevation gain and definitely recommend you bring water!

Amazing views and great trails! Choose the length you want to run or hike. Warning, this area can get very busy, but much easier during weekdays and avoiding 4-6pm rush.
