Summary

Author James Dziezynski has meticulously selected 80+ of the state?s absolute best peak hikes in over 50 superlative hikes, and provides opinionated narrative that brings each route to life. Each summit is included because of a notable feature - whether it?s the site of an abandoned mine or airplane wreckage, has thundering waterfalls or colorful floral meadows, is the best summit for spotting wildlife or bringing out-of-town friends, or is very accessible. Some peaks offer unique opportunities, such as a trailhead accessible only via a steam-powered railroad. Several summits are described in no other publication. Covering all the Colorado?s major mountain ranges, including well-known Sangre De Cristo, Gore, Sawatch, Indian Peaks, and Maroon Bell wilderness areas to the lesser-known Grenadiers, Medicine Bow, and Outer San Juan peaks, this distinctive guide makes it easy to select exactly the right hike for the right day, the right mood, and the right companions.
