Steps of the Colorado State Capitol
200 E. Colfax Ave.
Denver is widely known as the Mile High City but most of Downtown Denver sits slightly below this elevation. However, the steps of the Colorado State Capitol have a marker indicating the exact spot where you truly are a mile above sea level. On the 15th step are the words “ONE MILE ABOVE SEA LEVEL.” And there’s a brass benchmark on 18th step, and another marker on the 3rd step. Many different groups have surveyed the elevation and come to a few different conclusions over the years. Plan your visit today →
