Pros: Pretty good collection of trails if you're new to the area.

Cons: Too much inaccuracy to be a great book. Some of the trails are pretty far from the Springs while some better, closer trails aren't included.

Recommendation: This is a decent little guide to get you started int he area. The new edition has a slightly better lineup of trails, but still maintainse some of the flaws of the previous edition.

Pros: Gives elevation guides by the mile for each trail. The trail descriptions are sometimes useful due to the play by play format, especially on confusing trails.

Cons: Often the directions are wrong, the trail names are wrong, the trail direction is wrong, or it gives you roads. This guide is missing some great trails.

Recommendation: I recommend this as a back-up to Singletracks, or to those new to the local area.

Pros: Includes maps of a few popular rides.

Cons: Includes some truly crappy trails and omits some really important ones like Palmer Park. I actually drove out for some rides in this book that ended up being nothing more than dirt roads open to cars. Out of date as soon as it was printed.

Recommendation: Use singletracks.com instead. Seriously - this website is more complete, more up to date, includes more photos, better maps, more trails, and is easier to use. Perhaps the worst Falcon Guide I have used :(
