An All-Ages Guide to Hiking, Camping, and Getting Outside

University of New Mexico Press

Colorado Family Outdoor Adventure is the definitive guide for families of all ages to experiencing the natural splendors of Colorado. Whether you are planning your first family adventure or you are an experienced outdoors family, Heather Mundt provides everything parents, grandparents, children, and teenagers need to know to enjoy activities throughout the state. As an experienced outdoors writer, adventurer, and family traveler, Mundt shares more than sixty destinations across Colorado, outlining family adventures in hiking, biking, paddling, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, camping, skiing, sledding, rockhounding, wildlife watching, fishing, climbing, experiencing outdoor cultural activities, and more in this go-to guide.

Every one of these outdoor activities is graded in terms of difficulty and age-appropriateness, so every reader will know exactly which activities are right for their young kids, teens, and older relatives. Organized geographically with easy-to-use maps alongside detailed descriptions and beautiful photography, Colorado Family Outdoor Adventure explores every corner of the state with memory-making activities for every family.

Heather Mundt is a voice of authority in Colorado family outdoor adventure; she and her family have traveled there and tried that. Her guide will undoubtedly become an essential addition to family libraries, vehicle glove compartments, and hiking backpacks for residents and visitors alike.'--Ashley M. Biggers, author of Eco-Travel New Mexico: 86 Natural Destinations, Green Hotels, and Sustainable Adventures
