Twenty of the best hikes within Rocky mountain National ParkThe Best Rocky mountain National Park Hikes is a great addition to the Colorado mountain Club's very popular pack guide series. The 20 hikes comprise an enticing mix of easy, wheelchair-friendly; to moderate; to "shouldn't we be roping up now?' trails.Short and simple trails will bring hikers to beaver dams, mountain blueberries, and the autumn symphony of bugling elk. More demanding trails bring hikers to the summit of Flattop Mountain and the opportunity to summit the Park's icon - Longs Peak, standing tall at 14,255 feet.This guide offers a wide selection of sensory delights: - The plunging, roaring waters of Alberta Falls - Tongues of granite flowing into the shallows of Mills Lake - Autumn cascades of golden aspen leaves carpeting the forest floor - The rugged summits of Chapin, Chiquita, and Ypsilon peaks - An easy walk to the historic ghost town of Lulu CityIn 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 are receiving 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.
