We had people in our group of all different hiking abilities, and this book was really enough for everyone. Some of us who weren't able to do long or very strenuous hikes were able to enjoy the easiest and best hikes (from .5 miles to 2.0 miles round trip) like the Bear Lake nature trail, Sprague Lake, Nymph Lake, and Alberta Falls. The more energetic folks in my group, on the other hand, took a few mornings to do more moderate hikes (what this book calls "moderately easy" felt more like "moderate" to me, but I guess I am still a beginner!) like Mills Lake, The Loch, and Gem Lake, which were challenging for us but very do-able and WELL worth the extra effort! Hiking is the absolute best way to see the true beauty of RMNP, so if you are thinking of taking a trip there, you absolutely MUST venture off Trail Ridge Road, get out of the car, and go for a walk. Trust me, there is something out there for everyone, even those looking for hikes with small children.
Each hike is introduced with a chart giving summary data about the hike. Directions on how to get there, a route description and very well done maps complete the information.
The size of the book as well as the quality of the drawn maps make this a very good take-along guide when one is actually in the park.
Like most Falcon Guides in this series, 'Best easy Day Hikes, Rocky Mountain' features around 20 hikes, all under 8 miles with many that are 3 miles or less. You get a detailed route description, a nice sketch map, driving directions to the trail head, mileage, and a difficulty rating. You don't get pictures (besides the cover photo) or topography. But then the Best Easy Day Hikes series are fairly inexpensive for a reason. They are basically shortened versions of longer books in Falcon's 'Best Hikes' series. And if you have more than a few days, or live relatively nearby the park, then I'd recommend the latter. For my purposes however, this option was ideal. A good book at a good price that helped me explore a great location on a time budget.
