Geri Anderson's Come Walk In Their Footsteps lets you drive a route in Northern Colorado that retraces the Flat Top Trails used from American Indian days along a modern, if two lane, Scenic Byway. The route serves ranchers, sheepmen, travelers, loggers, outfitters, hikers and those who seek something a bit out of the way for their fishing venue.
There's a National Forest section, and the boundary to the 235,00 acre Flat Tops Wilderness is just a bit off the Scenic Byway. While not a fishing guide per se, the clear, concise directions to, from, by and around a number of fine lakes, and the note that you can find cutthroat, brook, brown and lake trout here, are all the clue the savvy angler needs to find some of the West's least crowded and most underrated wild trout action. You can do it on your own or use the included guide and outfitter listing.
Author Geri Anderson's been a resident of the area for nearly ten years and makes her home there. Her extensive trail experience in the Rocky Mountains, Vermont's Green Mountain and the Appalachian Trail show in her concise directions and specific recommendations.
