Reader's Thoughts

Rob McFarren

If you like to hike mountains, and want to hike the 14,000 foot mountains (fourteeners) in Colorado, this is the must-have book. This edition is probably a bit old now, but still the benchmark book to learning the routes, difficulties, directions to trailheads, and the payoff of each mountain's routes, from hikes to climbs.


This is a great reference book. I probably picked it up more than a dozen times over the summer to read about the most common routes and alternative routes. This will always have a place on my bookshelf.


I've lived in Colorado all my life and two years ago, I started my experience with Colorado 14ers. I may not be the most avid climber, but I do plan on climbing these amazing mountains for many years to come. After my second mountain, I realized that I was going to need a way to keep track and better plan my future climbs and, being that I worked at a bookstore, I had a pretty good opportunity to look through many books on the subject. I found this book to be by far the best guide of its type. It gives all the information that a climber will need to climb every last fourteener and does so in a way that is enjoyable and easy to understand without giving away any of the thrills and experiences of the climb itself. I highly recommend this book to anybody who wants to climb even just one of these amazing mountains.


I've had great luck with getting what this said I would. I also bought map packet which has proven helpful too.

This was indispensable when planning on climb up Mt. of the Holy Cross in 2004. Packed with info. If you want to walk/hike/climb a fourteener in Colorado, this has EVERYTHING you need to know.


Geeze, I don't know how many hours I've spent reading this book OR dreaming about the mountains described within it. Definately a must-have for anyone hiking in Colorado.A newer edition is needed. Some trails have changed since it was last published.


Lots of info.

William Long

A must have for the Colorado peak-bagger.

Laura Marinkovich

This book is undeniably helpful to avid hikers. As a beginner however I'm not sure that this is the book I ought to have started with. I'm hoping to work up to some of these trails but there are many that I'm aware I will never conquer.
