“Base Camp Denver: 101 Hikes In Colorado’s Front Range” by Pete KJ is a detailed hiking guide with lots of pictures, a helpful “At a Glance” section on every hike, detailed maps, and even lengthy descriptions of all 101 Colorado front range hikes to explore.
There are some “classic” Colorado hikes and some other hikes off the beaten path. The author splits up the hikes both by region and by season at the beginning of the book. Don’t forget to check out the index at the end of the book too, where he further breaks down the hikes into sections such as “Easy for children or adults with limited mobility,” “Teen Favorites,” “Interesting Geology, and many more breakdowns. The book covers hikes as far North as Fort Collins all the way down the Colorado Springs area. It is perfect for a hiker looking to get a Summer hike in before sunset after work, or on the weekend when time might be limited.
This book really covers so much of the front range that for most it will be the only hiking guidebook you would need if you are visiting Colorado on vacation or if you are a local looking for a great guide for what may be a short drive for you along the front range. I definitely recommend this book.
