This is book number 607 in the National Geographic Trails Illustrated Map series.
- Waterproof - Tear-Resistant - Topographic Map
Located in the heart of Summit County--minutes from the ski slopes of Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, and Arapahoe Basin, and on the shores of shimmering Dillon Reservoir--the mountain towns of Dillon and Silverthorne offer breathtaking views of the Gore and Tenmile Ranges. The location provides countless opportunities for recreation on both water and land.
The Dillon and Silverthorne area is crisscrossed with trails for all ability levels, sometimes with so many trails it can be difficult to choose where to start. This map is a combination of a standard trail map on the front with a helpful guide on the back that has a selection of recommended hikes, from the leisurely stroll on the 2.4 mile Oro Grande Trail to the incredibly steep, 3,000 foot trek up Buffalo Mountain. Each selected trail includes a brief description, specs such as elevation gain and length as well as a detailed elevation profile to track your progress up and down the numerous peaks and valleys.
Each Local Trails map includes detailed trail maps at 1 inch = 1/2 mile. At this scale every turn of the trail is clearly visible and when covering steep terrain the contours are clearly visible. In addition to the standard features like trailheads and parking areas the maps also show difficulties for each trail segment so you can tell if the entire trail is moderate or if there is only a single short section of difficult on an otherwise easy trail.
Every Local Trails map is printed on Backcountry Tough waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation.Map Scale = 1:31,680Sheet Size = 26.25 x 19.5Folded Size = 4 x 7.5
