Is a 1 hour layover enough time in Denver anymore?
Right now the schedules are a mess because of low visibility at DEN due to wildfire smoke from California ; I see 45 minute delay on all inbounds right now at 3pm local time. I do like to board with group A, so a 45 min connection might mean that you board near the end depending on how fast you walk, how soon you can deplane, how far apart the gates are, etc.
I'm not checking a bag because I don't want to take the chance that it doesn't make the connection. I tried 45 min layovers twice,in smaller airports than Denver.

Thanks so much for all of your advice. Normally it wouldn't matter, but my dogsitter is leaving town that night and I need to be home before that happens. Post by tibbitts » Sun Aug 08, pm.

13 things to do on a layover at denver international airport
Having said that - this is airline times. If you are going into some small airport that SW only flies into twice a day, in small planes, I would be more concerned. Post by calwatch » Mon Aug 09, pm.

Post by galawdawg » Mon Aug 09, am. There is always 1 or 2 seats available in the front center seats. I checked and see that there are at least 12 other flights to my destination later in the day, so I'll stick with my current reservation. I plan on checking in as soon as I'm allowed the day before to get the best boarding priority that I can get for the first leg.

Is a 1 hour layover enough time in denver? it might be too much actually…
Think about how long it takes to deplane. Post by 30west » Mon Aug 09, am. In normal times, it would be a stretch, but flying is a headache right now. As far as connecting in terminal C where all Southwest flights are that should be doable. I'll have to think about that.

When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. With a noon flight if you are going to a major airport with lots flights later in the day I would not worry about at least getting on a later flight if you miss the noon flight unless there is some widespread disruption.

Extending your layover
However the outbound flight is probably just as likely to be delayed as well. You might be ok with that, especially if you are traveling alone or don't mind having to check your carry-on.
