From the popular Mountaineers Books series, Best Hikes With Dogs – this is the book that covers the State of Colorado.
· Seldom explored trails where no leashes are required and terrain is easy on
· Advice on keeping your dog happy, healthy, and hydrated in Colorado’s High Country
· What to pack: the Ten Canine Essentials and a Doggy First Aid Kit
Whether your dog is big or small, an overweight couch potato or a muscular retriever, Ania Savage has selected the best trails for every type of dog. She’s been hiking with canine companions for more than twenty years and looks at the land through dog-centric eyes. These hikes in Best Hikes With Dogs – Colorado will delight both you and your pet with panoramic views, soft tundra grasses, plenty of flowing water, and unexplored valleys and forests where you may have the trail to yourself. Savage puts a premium on canine safety, including tips on how to gauge the effect of high altitude and thin air on your dog.
From short day hikes to longer backpacking trips, many trails are clustered along the three highway “corridors” that penetrate the Colorado Rockies. They stretch from the Wyoming border to the San Juan Mountains in southern Colorado and west to Grand Junction, and including the Foothills near Denver; many have never before been described in another guidebook.
Ania Savage, a journalist whose work has appeared in The New York Times, USA Today, and other national publications, is the author of two additional guidebooks on Colorado. Best Hikes with Dogs: Colorado, is dedicated to the memory of Colorado Mountain Club members who hike with their dogs.
