Wilderness Press :: Hiking :: Afoot and Afield: Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Rocky Mountain National Park
Afoot and Afield: Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Rocky Mountain National Park
Afoot and Afield: Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Rocky Mountain National Park 
184 Spectacular Outings in the Colorado Rockies

Afoot and Afield: Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the most comprehensive hiking and biking books available. Alan Apt, author of the best-selling guidebook, Snowshoe Routes Colorado’s Front Range, and Kay Turnbaugh, author of Around Nederland, carefully describe 184 adventures for people of all abilities and interests. The book includes everything from easy access Front Range lakeside strolls to high challenging treks among the high peaks. Many trails are great for kids (of all ages)—less ambitious but highly satisfying, easy gambols in the natural world. The geographical scope of the book stretches from the Fort Collins area to Colorado Springs, and west to Rocky Mountain National Park, Fairplay, and Independence Pass; with superb coverage of mountains, plains, canyons and riverside adventures.

The book includes over 150 photos and maps for every trail, as well as safety checklists and how-to tips based on more than 90 years of combined outdoor experience. If you visit 10 trails per year, you will have almost 20 years of trails described in this book to enjoy.

The new edition offers much more than the first edition, with:
•    184 trails, many of them new
•    60+ hikes within one hour of Denver-Boulder
•    33 peak summit hikes--20 mountain summits, 13 foothills
•    80 hikes with options for families with kids
•    43 hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park
•    57 hikes to lakes
•    65 trails good for mountain biking
•    80 trails good for winter sports
