Easy, moderate or strenuous hiking?

Easy to moderate, and not too far from CU campus. Or between Boulder/Denver if that exists. Looking to hike for a few hours, no professional gear with us by any means, and get back to the bar in time for happy hour. Looking for something with a scenic viewpoint to hike to.

Right right. Good choice. Check out Chautauqua Park.

Man. There's this jazz bar on Market St. that's a stone's throw from Falling Rock that I'd highly recommend. Also TRVE and Epic Brewing Co.

I only spent three days in Denver and most of those three days were spent at GABF or on a tour of Odell in Fort Collins, but those places I mentioned above really made an impression on me.

I also recall a bar called The Matchbox or something that was really good. The music that night was a vinyl DJ spinning some Stax and Sun Records stuff and joints were being passed around in the rain on the back patio.

Looks like a nice course.

Here's a couple recommendations for eateries near Coors Field.

#1 Lola Coastal - I've eaten there and it was good.
#2 Linger - Wanted to eat there but it was a long wait, so we ate at Lola Coastal.
Linger is in an old mortuary (Olingers).

Bonus points - there's a giant milk can in this same city block, where you can get an ice cream. You could probably walk into somewhere closer to the park (Like LoDo's), but this little area in LoHi is only 1.5 miles from the ballpark.

It's also near Confluence Park.

OK getting specific with the ol' itinerary now.

Can anyone recommend hotels in Boulder near Folsom Stadium / Pearl Street that offer 24/7 shuttle service to/from Denver International Airport?

I know it seems like a longshot. Wondering if it exists.
