The Front Range of the Colorado

Overview

The best hikes in Colorado's Front Range, selected by members of The Colorado Mountain Club

• 70 hikes chosen for the beauty of the scenery, the variety of the terrain, and the quality of the hike itself

• Complete trail descriptions, color photos, and maps

The Front Range of the Colorado Rockies rises abruptly from the plains in a 150-mile stretch of foothills, rounded summits, and jagged peaks between Fort Collins and Colorado Springs.

The hikes in this book were selected by members of four major groups of The Colorado Mountain Club in an occasionally contentious process. After some heated arguments, quiet horse trading, and uproarious laughter, members decided on their favorites—so these really are the best hikes in the Front Range.

Each description starts with some basic information about the hike, followed by comments on the hike by the writer/photographer, directions to the trailhead, and a complete route description, including pictures from the route and a color map of the trail.

THE BOULDER, DENVER, FORT COLLINS, AND PIKES PEAK GROUPS OF THE COLORADO MOUNTAIN CLUB have each formed committees to write and take photos for a small Pack Guide of the best hikes within an hour of their towns. These seventy hikes were selected from those four highly successful Pack Guides.
