Colorado has literally hundreds of stunningly beautiful high country lakes and reservoirs, many of which can be reached by hikers of all skill levels. Some are as short as a mile or so and others will take a strong hiker all day. Colorado Lake Hikes guides you on one hundred such hikes, and includes insightful comments on what distinguishes each hike, detailed instructions on how to get to the trailhead, and accurate descriptions of the hike itself. All the hikes in the book include a color photo of the lake and a map with the trail clearly marked in red. Each hike begins with basic information on the hike including the distance, estimated hiking time, starting elevation, highest elevation, elevation gain, a difficulty rating, and a list of relevant maps.
