Maps and Guidebooks
If you are planning an excursion on The Colorado Trail, we recommend that you utilize one or more of the following:
- The Official Guidebook of The Colorado Trail Foundation – the Guidebook particularly helps with trip planning, getting to access points and on-Trail reference.
- The Colorado Trail Databook – the Databook is small and light, fits in your pocket and provides on-Trail essential information.
- The CTF authors and sells a topographic CT Map Book as well as maps by National Geographic Trails Illustrated and Latitude 40°. See all our maps and guidebooks in the CTF Store.
