Run the Rockies: Classic Trail Runs in Colorado's Front Range

By Steven Bragg


A comprehensive guide to the Colorado Front Range for any level of trail runner from beginner to expert.




Fifty great routes that are relatively close to Boulder, Denver, and Colorado Springs.


• Large, clear route maps with distance, elevation gain and loss, and GPS waypoints for the directionally impaired.


Everyone knows that the Colorado Rockies contain some of the most spectacular trails in the country. Now the Colorado Mountain Club reveals some of its favorites for trail runners. Colorado Classics: Run the Rockies contains detailed information for 50 classic trail runs chosen for their proximity to the major population centers of the Front Range, as well as their incredible scenic qualities and appeal to runners of all abilities. Here you’ll find everything you need to enjoy the best that the state has to offer: accurate access and route descriptions, detailed maps and elevation profiles, running techniques, equipment checklists, and safety tips. Fully GPS enabled means that you can use the newest navigational technology to keep you on the right trail.

Runners who want to spend more time running then reading can take advantage of the special “GO!” boxes with encapsulated route information. A rating system from beginner to expert takes the guesswork out of choosing a run, and an easy-to-understand system of symbols quickly identifies runs that are seasonal, or are dog friendly, or require fees. And there’s much more, including specially marked trails that are all-time favorites with the Colorado Mountain Club.

STEVEN BRAGG has been climbing peaks around the world and running trails for nearly two decades. He is past president of the 8,000-member Colorado Mountain Club and an author of nearly a dozen books. He lives and works in the Denver, Colorado, area.
