60 Hike within 60 Miles – by Kim Lipker
Kim Lipker explores the many hiking trails around Denver, Boulder, and the surrounding region. With such a magnificent landscape offering what is classed as “some of the best hiking spots around” and so many trails to choose from, Kim Lipker breaks some of the better ones down, especially for those who have either never hiked before or tourists to the area. The author has put together a “key-at-a-glance” code in order making the choice of trails even easier as it identifies the scenery, length and difficulty of the hike and which towns they are near, etc. The book includes hikes near Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Boulder.
A great choice of book for both seasoned and newbie hikers.
