This book covers ALL the mountain ranges in Colorado, and does it in an interesting and informative way. It does NOT give detailed trail guides...how could it and still be portable? Although a resident of Colorado for many years, I still wondered just where one range began and another left off, what was the history of a particular region, what was the translation and derivation of some fascinating name (Sangre De Cristo Mountains ?), and where the most interesting trails might be. This guide covers all that and more. For complete detail on individual trails, look elsewhere, but for an excellent overview of all the Colorado mountain ranges, this is a great reference.

I much agree with the previous reviewer who stated...just enough to get you in trouble. Exactly. As I hinted at in my review title, you don't get much more than the names of the peaks in this book. While for someone who hasn't read anything else it may seen useful but in my case I've read and own many mountain guides.
This book is woefully inadequate....it gives you little information on approaches, very vague descriptions of climbing routes if at all, etc. For an example of what a good mountaineering guidebook should be then checkout anything by Gerry Roach or if you are a 4-season climber like me, look into Louis Dawson's guides.

Not for novice climbers who need more detailed descriptions or are looking only for the same crowded peaks covered in the other Colorado guidebooks. But a unique resource for more experienced climbers/hikers/backpackers with hundreds (thousands?)of peaks and other destinations to explore. No other book I've found covers ALL of Colorado's mountains - with enough info to get you going on the right ridge or around the odd obstacle. I've climbed nearly 1000 peaks in Colorado and never needed another guide, although others may find the descriptions too short.
