Colorado Trail Map Book


Current edition, shaded relief, full color topo maps showing the entire Colorado Trail in great detail. Topo maps for the entire CT, all 567-miles of The Colorado Trail, including CT Collegiate West & Collegiate East, showing all trail reroutes opened. Also covers each of the five bicycle wilderness detours mandatory for cyclists.

The CT line is highly accurate; it shows every corner along the way. Along the line are 1200 waypoints (milepoints, approximately every half mile) that help you track your progress and navigate. This map set with topo, line, and milepoints helps you plan as you travel, alerting you to upcoming water sources and terrain that may be suitable for camping. The Map Book precision also assists users in coordinating rendevous with friends and family. Magnetic declinations are provided for compass users.

Book can be disassembled allowing you to carry just what you need.  Toner-based printing is water resistant.  (Paper, though sturdy, is not waterproof and packing in a Ziploc bag is recommended.)
