Hiking Grand County, Colorado, a hiking guide that many local residents consider the preeminent guide to trail hiking in Middle Park, has just released the newest edition of the popular book.

The fourth edition of the hiking guide went on sale last week at multiple locations across Grand County and will soon be on sale at REI locations along the Front Range. The hiking guide, which is produced and updated by married couple Deborah Carr and Lou Ladrigan, has been helping guide hikers in Grand County for nearly two full decades now after being initially published in 2002. Over the years roughly 11,000 copies of the book have been sold.

The newest edition of the guidebook features 16 new trail additions as well as updates on classic routes taking into account any changes made by trail makers. Among the new trails covered in the book Morgan Gulch to Aspen Lodge Trail, which leads hikers from County Road 3 up Muddy Creek to the site of an old hunting lodge that burned down many years ago. Carr also highlighted Jean Miller Pass trail as a great new addition to the guide that local hikers will enjoy.
