Within an hour's drive of Interstate 25 south from Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Walsenburg, Trinidad, and toward New Mexico, you will find some of the best hiking trails in all of Colorado.- Amazing country, beautiful trails, many routes with few other hikers- Instructions on how to get to the trailhead and complete route descriptions- Commentary on the routes plus color maps and photosA number of hikers contacted us to say that they loved our book, The Best Front Range Hikes, but they wanted more hikes south of Denver to the New Mexico border. For this southern edition, we asked the project manager of The Best Colorado Springs Hikes to hike, write, and photograph a guidebook for the Southern Front Range.The Best Southern Front Range Hikes includes 65 of the most superb hikes found anywhere in the state. The hikes were chosen for a number of reasons, including the beauty of the scenery, the variety of terrain, the quality of the hiking experience on the trail, and the fact that many of these trails don't get used as much as the trails in other parts of the state. Some are close to town while others are more remote. Many make excellent family outings while others challenge the seasoned mountaineer. All can be done in a day from at least one of the cities listed above.Each description starts with some basic information about the hike, including elevation gain, difficulty level, and round-trip distance and time. These statistics are followed by comments on what to expect on the hike, directions to the trailhead, and a complete route description, including photos from the route and a color topo of the trail.
Greg Long is a hiker and climber who has thru-hiked the Colorado Trail and summited high peaks throughout the world. He teaches high school and lives in Palmer Lake, Colorado.
