Great Backroads Book Sep 15, 2008
I loved this book. It has great detail and is very accurate with his rating of difficulty of each back road. The direction from both routes was even easy for my wife to read and understand. Great book!!
Awesome Guidebook with tons of pics and GREAT adventures!! Jul 22, 2008
This is positively the most comprehensive guidebook for exploring numerous backroads around Silverton, Telluride, Ouray, Durango, Lake City - and generally the Southwestern portion of Colorado! There is so much detail in this colorful little book. The authors identify the old mines and ruins you see along the trails. There are history sidebars and TONS of photos. Mainly written for people driving SUVs, all the trails are rated for difficulty, although none of them are radically hard. Still, there is Black Bear trail that runs from Red Mountain Pass to Telluride, which is pretty challenging and they have included that with photos of the spectacular waterfalls along the route. Plenty of easy and moderate scenic drives make you feel like you are really exploring Colorado's fabulous backcountry. You won't get lost! It is really fun using this book to navigate the trails. GREAT quality, handy size, and highly recommended! It is by far the best book of it's kind I have found to-date.
