The Best Denver HikesBook - 2009
Thirty of the best Denver hikes -- from city walks to state park hikes to difficult mountain treks -- all within a hour of town.Denver sits next to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and some of the best hiking and snowshoeing in the world. Denver also has one of the finest urban trail systems in the country, laid out much like those of many towns in Europe, with both urban and mountain trail systems. Start downtown with an excellent wheelchair-accessible loop around some city highlights, head for a fine stroll along historic Highline Canal, or venture into numerous state parks to enjoy a bit more solitude. And when you are experienced enough and up for an adventure, tackle some of the finest treks up nearby mountains in the Front Range. The Best Denver Hikes covers all levels of trails and includes tips for enjoying Denver-area trails all year long.
