Description


Hit the road to experience Colorado’s most breathtaking byways, mile by mile.


In this updated and revised edition, intrepid local writers and travelers Drea Knufken and John Daters are once again your guides to the pinnacles of the Rockies, the sandstone valleys of the Western Slope, and the windswept prairies of the eastern state. Follow them through carefully crafted itineraries, so you too can:


• Ski, hike, or camp in the 2.3-million-acre White River National Forest.


• Navigate frontier paths and long-abandoned ghost towns.


• Explore ancestral Puebloan settlements along the San Juan Skyway.


• Drive the highest paved byway in North America, the Trail Ridge Road.


This practical guidebook includes the authors’ expert insights into the state’s must-see sites, memorable meals, and cozy lodgings. This is the shortest route you can take to explore like a native and the perfect way for residents to delve deeper into the history and magic of Colorado.
