The Trails Illustrated Colorado Backpacking Loops South topographic map guide covers a dozen loops throughout southern Colorado, selected for their diversity, remoteness and inspiring vistas.


  • Each page of the guide includes a detailed map of the trail with directions to the trailhead from the nearest major town as well as a trail profile with mileages
  • GPS coordinates are provided for strategic points along the trail to help with navigation
  • Trails are organized by the number of nights backpackers can expect to be in the backcountry, from 1 to more than 3
  • Trails range from 10 to 26 miles long with elevation gains from 2,000 to over 9,000 ft.
  • Trail descriptions give an overview of the natural features you'll encounter along the way as well as the length, total elevation gain and nearest town to each trailhead
  • More convenient and easier to use than folded maps, but just as compact and lightweight, map guide booklets are printed on "Backcountry Tough" waterproof, tear-resistant paper
  • A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation
