  • This is arm chair reading for the winter months, as most of the trails described are covered with snow. I was pleased to find so many options within a two hour drive of Denver. The descriptions give enough detail to create interest but do not overwhelm the hiker with minutia. I will copy the appropriate pages and put them in my pack in anticipation of Spring.

  • Great info

  • Great hiking book

  • Title should be amended to "Best Day Loop Hikes ---".I was looking for multi-day loop hikes.

  • Although S. J. Pfrimmer's review doesn't seem to be that popular, the reviewer hit the nail on the head. As mentioned, 31/60 hikes are along the Front Range. While this is great if you live in Denver and want a Denver specific guidebook, this book is advertized as pointing out the best hikes in Colorado, not the best hikes around Denver (and even then many of the hikes are hardly "the best"). It doesn't appear that the authors are even familiar with most of the state and were in a hurry to choose the hikes for the book.

    Here's an example. In contrast to the Front Range, there are only six hikes in the mighty San Juan Mountains. Not one even gets close to timberline! Only one of them is over 5.5 miles and the rest are short jaunts. There is nothing wrong with a short hike as being one of the best, but to include almost nothing in the San Juans that is more than a couple hours and never gets close to timberline and have the nerve to call it the "best" the range has to offer should be a crime.

    The above was only one example. Entire huge swaths of spectacular areas of Colorado are completely eliminated. There is nothing at all mentioned in places like the Sangre de Christos or Dinosaur National Monument. In the entire section of Colorado (a huge portion of the state) west of Steamboat Springs and north of I-70 there is only one hike featured.

    As mentioned, this book does have some good hikes mentioned and is good for Front Range residents, but the book should not be advertized as covering the "best" hikes in Colorado. It is more focused on only one area in Colorado rather than the whole state.

  • Unfortunately the previous review does not give just credit to the hikes included in this book and the specific reason for including them. As a native of Colorado, I can say that there are copious amounts of trails and wanderings to be enjoyed and Weinstein and Johnson's guide does an excellent job of providing a handful of quality Colorado options for the day-hiker or multi-day trekker. It is truly one of the few guides that covers loop routes of Colorado in vivid description and I would highly recommend it.

  • More than half of the hikes in this book are front range hikes. Many of which, I would hardly call a hike because they're only 2-3 miles in length. Many of the great loop hikes in the mountain areas were left out. The authors even admit that some of the "best" hikes listed in the book really aren't that great! There are also hikes which I recognize as being mountain bike trails, and who wants to be on a trail with a bunch of mountain bikes whizing by? Now I must admit I did find out about two mountain loop hikes that I didn't know about, so I guess the book was worth buying for that.
