Twenty of the best hikes near Estes Park, ColoradoThe Best Estes Park Hikes continues the series of best-selling pack guides published by CMC Press. The trails range from short, scenic, and wheelchair-accessible hikes near Estes Park to moderately difficult and even seriously challenging adventures.This fit-in-your-pocket guide will take you from the summit of Twin Sisters Peak, at 11,428 feet - with great walking through fragrant pine forests - to the gently meandering paved trail around Lake Estes, which affords panoramic views of Long's Peak, Rocky Mountain National Park's most famous landmark.With this guide, you will have the opportunity to sample wild raspberries along moderate trails crossed by rushing mountain streams, marvel at butterscotch-scented Ponderosa pines, and test your legs and endurance on a 13-mile loop through fir and pine forests. You will linger for lunch at Gem Lake, ponder the lives of early explorers and homesteaders at Homestead Meadows, soothe your feet in cold mountain streams, and survey your surroundings with a trek to the 11,000-foot Estes Cone.In addition to detailed comments, route descriptions, and directions, each of the 20 hikes contains a map segment, elevation gain, difficulty rating, estimated time of the hike, round-trip distance, and nearest landmark.
With this pack guide, you receive the wisdom and experience of the Shining Mountains Group of the Colorado mountain Club. Group members selected, hiked, and wrote about the trails in this guide. In addition, they are the photographers and cartographers for the photos and maps with each trail description
