I picked up a free magazine in Breck last summer for rides in that area. Pretty okay, lots of rides, profiles, descriptions.

If Latitude 40 makes a map of an area, I count on it to get me around that area. Top notch maps.

Anyone know the best guidebook that covers high country trails within a few hours of Denver?

TIA

Latitude 40 just released the first edition of their Summit County map. Performance in Boulder just got theirs on Friday. Pretty good...covers Breck, Frisco, Copper, Keystone, Colorado Trail from Kenosha all the way to Twin Lakes (Leadville), and even has Vail and a bit of Winter Park.

Many choices, so little time ...

Steve:

At first, I was going to send you a list of the many books I have that cover
this area. But I realized that was overkill.

I'd just go to a few shops and look around. (That's the way I've found many a
useful guide book.)

Two books I'll mention directly:
1. Salida Singletrack, by Nathan Ward, and
2. Colorado Gonzo Mountain Bike Rides, by Michael Merrifield

The first one is kind of new, but has some great rides from Leadville down to Salida.

The second one is by a friend of mine. It's kind of dated, now, (it came out
10 years ago???), but it's got a boat load of great (gonzo :)) rides.

And, of course, you can always hit a LBS in the area -- the one in Leadville
is very helpful.
