Easy Hikes to the Hidden Past: Pikes Peak Region Edition (Paperback)
Easy Hikes to the Hidden Past is a unique book concept to get readers off the couch and outside to the Great Outdoors, to not only enjoy some wonderful walks hikes and bike rides, but to also make discoveries of the region's-often hidden-historic past. Hiking books are quite common and a valued resource to new adventures. This book, however, combines well-researched trail explorations with an educational "treasure hunt" for relics of times gone by that should not be forgotten. The Pikes Peak Region Edition covers Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Cripple Creek, Canon City, Monument and Palmer Lake. Not a dry turn-by-turn book but narration with personality.
There are a broad range of explorations in Easy Hikes to the Hidden Past offering something for everyone, with varied physical abilities. Some discoveries can be seen from the car window as you drive through history, some can be accessed by walking or on a bike, still others by trail hiking, all of which would be classified as easy to moderate difficulty level. Trail maps, trivia, historical photos, humor and insights.
