Best Easy Day Hikes Colorado Springs is my newest book to be released by my publisher Falcon Guides/Globe Pequot Press. The pocket-sized book explores 23 fun hikes in the mountains and foothills surrounding 14,115-foot Pikes Peak and Colorado Springs. The book is my fourth released this year!
With concise descriptions and detailed maps, Best Easy Day Hikes Colorado Springs guides hikers to all my favorite trails in the Pikes Peak region, including some relatively new ones as well as some that are unknown except to locals. Some of the best hikes include Spruce Mountain, an out-and-back trip in southern Douglas County; five hikes at scenic Garden of the Gods (great rock climbing there too!); Gray Back Peak, a lofty Front Range viewpoint; a couple excellent trails at Cheyenne Mountain State Park; and The Crags Trail, a perennial favorite on the west side of Pikes Peak.
If you're coming to the Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak region for some hiking and exploring adventures, then Best Easy Day Hikes Colorado Springs will get you outside in the mountains and on the trail quick and easy. If you're looking for a hiking and rock climbing guide to the area, then give me a holler at Front Range Climbing Company and we'll get you out hiking and climbing.
