The worst part of the book is that it doesn't mention excellent hikes after Conifer, to Bailey, to Pine, and onto Lost Park. The 285 corridor has some excellent hikes. There are intersecting hikes with the Colorado Trail that aren't mentioned.
I believe this book needs revision and updating.
My biggest heartburn with the book is the Author tells readers its alright not to clean up after your dog(s) when they go poop on a walk or hike. That it is fine to push it off the trail with a stick or something because no one cleans up after the other animals who live in the wild. This is RUDE, DISGUSTING, and IRRESPONSIBLE. We would have never purchased the book if we had known this is her belief, and it is obvious from the amount of dog poop on CO hiking trails people practice what she recommends! The reasons you need to clean up after your dog(s) are 1) Its the Law, 2) Dog poop does not break down like native animal waste due to chemical factors of their waste--especially when there are literally hundreds of dogs using those trails, 3) It pisses off other hikers and trails are being closed to dogs as a result (actually it has nothing to do with dog and everything to do with disgusting people). Bottom line - save your money and if you see the Author on the trail with her dog give her a poop bag:)
If you are into hiking, then you will really love the trails she describes and points out in this book... if you're rather the kind of person who only goes on strolls, then that section won't help you a lot, though.
