From the publisher: When all you want to do is lace up your shoes and get on a trail, turn to these urban walks, which take you through 30 local nature areas with many choices that are just a few minutes' drive from home. Varying from 2 to 8 miles, these routes are Denver's best urban hikes and the trail descriptions are supplemented with maps and anecdotes that invite you to explore.

Want a longer hike without having to jump on I-70? You'll find special coverage of Denver's 9 Creeks Loop, a 41-mile trail system that circles Denver's core via the Sand Creek Greenway, High Line Canal, Cherry Creek Trail and Platte River Trail. You'll even discover little known trails and parks most books don't cover. The author has hiked each trail, narrowing down the hundreds of miles of choices in Denver's Regional Trail system to these 30 best options.

No need to buy special shoes or gear. Just grab your water bottle, your walking shoes, and a snack. Pick one of these easily accessed trails, follow the directions to park, and get out of your car in less than 5 minutes. What are you waiting for?
