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 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.
