BRAND NEW National Geographic Trails Illustrated Colorado Trail Topographic Map Guide Bundle Pack.
• Waterproof • Tear-Resistant • Topographic Map Guide
In a state known for its trails, The Colorado Trail is Colorado's premier long distance trail. Conceived in 1973 and completed in 1987, the trail runs 486 miles between Denver and Durango, traversing some of the most spectacular scenery in the state. This Map Pack combines the entire standard route into a single easy to purchase product.
The Colorado Trail Map Pack includes:
Map 1201 :: Colorado Trail South
Map 1202 :: Colorado Trail North
Colorado Trail South - When The Colorado Trail is traversed from its southern terminus outside of Durango it climbs steeply into the San Juan Mountains where it stays above 10,000 feet for almost 150 miles with only a single steep decent to the Animas River near Silverton. The highest point on the trail is found in the San Juan Mountains at 13,271 feet. After leaving the San Juan Mountains, the trail travels for a short time below 10,000 feet before once again climbing into the Sawatch Range and joining The Colorado Trail North and Collegiate Loop. Each page is centered on the trail and overlaps with adjacent pages so there is little chance of getting lost. Along the bottom of each page is a trail profile that shows the distance between passes, camping areas, and trail access points. The map and trail profile provide a step by step visual guide to hiking the trail, mile by rugged mile.
Colorado Trail North - The Colorado Trail is often started at its north terminus in Waterton Canyon just outside of Denver. When traveling from north to south the trail follows the South Platte River and quickly climbs into the Lost Creek Wilderness. From here the trail crosses into Holy Cross Wilderness near Leadville. The trail then skirts the eastern slope of the Sawatch Range and passes beneath Mount Elbert, the highest mountain in Colorado. Next comes the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness with its multiple 14ers before finally joining with the Collegiate Loop near Monarch Pass. The Colorado Trail from Monarch to Durango is then picked up on the south Topographic Map Guide. Each page is centered on the trail and overlaps with adjacent pages so there is little chance of getting lost. Along the bottom of each page is a trail profile that shows the distance between passes, camping areas, and trail access points. The map and trail profile provide a step by step visual guide to hiking the trail, mile by rugged mile.
