* Guidebook covers trails where few other hikers go
* Full-color trail maps and photos

A 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 the 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 Colorado. 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 hikes while others challenge the seasoned mountaineer. All hikes in this guidebook can be done in a day from at least one of the cities listed above.

Each trail 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 trail description, including photos from the route and a color topo of the trail.
