I'm a total off-road rookie and recently purchased a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR BOTH ROOKIES AND EXPERTS! It shows many trails and rates them easy/moderate/difficult. I've been slowly working my way through each level of trails. Great maps, excellent descriptions of how to get to each location and detailed trail mileage. Great book for anybody in Boulder/Longmont/Loveland/Ft Collins area.
While not as extensive as some other books, this book contains trails worth seeing. Good descriptions, maps and photos. I think the Guide to Colorado Backroads (not Northern) by the same author is a little better, this is definitely a good buy
I have lived in Colorado my whole life and this book is still really helpful.The trail descriptions are really accurate and the vehicle recomendations are dead on.
They use gps coordinates for the start points and other spots on each trail. If you have a Garmin you can plug them in and drive right to the trail.
Very informative descriptions of trails and what to expect.
I've had this book for a long time and just refreshed it to get the spriral bound version. I was new to off-roading 6+ years ago when I went out to visit a friend in Colorado for the first time after purchasing a truck with 4x4 and skid plates. The book has been immensely helpful for a novice like me, who is willing to take his stock truck on some moderate adventures. I skip the advanced/difficult stuff, so no idea how well those are documented. For what I need, it's perfect. Easy to read and very well documented.
If you are a first time visitor to the area looking for jeep trails you need this book. Next to talking to the locals this book will let you know where to go and gives great directions to the start and along the trails. Only reason I did not give the book 5 stars was from my experience on some of the trails in this book. I found the trail descriptions leaning towards the cautious side maybe a little to much. But on the other hand better this way than to get people in trouble. I'm just being picky here but I will say this series of trail guides belong in your jeep or FWB if you are planning a trip to the covered areas. I guess I've talked myself in to a five star rating for all three of Mr. Wells and Peterson's books.
These are the only books to buy for trail advice and locations... only issue is with only 3 categories, (easy, intermediate, difficult) it's hard to judge without talking to others who have run the trail, what is REALLY difficult, and what is just difficult for a stock rig. I have a 99 Tacoma with 33' tires and a locker and many of the difficult trails I walk through... yet some need lockers front/rear and 35+ tires.
These books are all great! I love the detail and the guidance. I used these with my very avid 4 wheeler boyfriend and he thought they were great as well. It contains maps, which help since many of these trails are hidden, a difficulty rating on each trail, and a verbal detail of the trail, as well as any sights to see to the final destination, either turn around and go back or loop around. It was the perfect gift for a 4 wheeler guru.
Excellent guide that breaks trails down into EASY, MODERATE, and DIFFICULT and gives examples of vehicle appropriate for each trail category. Directions on how to access trail head plus driving tips and local numbers to check road conditions. We are going to buy the other Colorado version that covers the rest of the state.
