5.0 out of 5 stars The Book For The RMNP Day Hiker, October 17, 1999
This review is from: Hiking Rocky Mountain National Park: Including Indian Peaks (Paperback)
This is a superior guide for anyone seeking an "off road" experience in Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) -- the only way to really see the park's wonders. The authors have first hand experience on the trails, discuss the terrain, the turns, the animals, flowers, and habitat. For the novice or less experienced hiker, this book will give you everything you need to hike in confidence. It will help you select the best trail for your time and effort level. This book will tell you "what's up ahead," so if you're an explorer first, the surprise is limited to the beauty not the unexpected. However, if avoiding uncertainly is your goal (and a good one in the mountains where weather is unpredictable and trerrain and altitude can be challenging) this is The Book. Without this book a hiker to Mills Lake, for example, might not know to look for the cairns that mark about 100 yards of obscured trail over the glacial rock just north of the lake.
For the more experienced outdoorsman and those familar with the park, the book provides a touch of naturalism and environmental science that makes an informed reference or overnight backpacking trip. I've selected a number of trails to hike in the park based on this book's descriptions and recommendations and NEVER been disappointed. I am planning a one-week excursion across the park for the summer of 2000 and will have this book in my backpack. This book is money well invested.
