First (and worst), the current edition of DeLorme for Colorado does not show all of the public campgrounds -- or even a respectable fraction of them. These are the ubiquitous US Forest Service campgrounds that are sprinkled throughout Colorado's ten national forests, and are a handy (though primitive) camping alternative for hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors each year. Past editions of the Colorado Atlas and Gazetteer showed each and every USFS public campground, which meant that all the info I needed short of consulting a USFS National Forest-specific map was in one place: DeLorme. Now, however, the DeLorme map book shows maybe one out of every three or four -- which probably is worse than showing none at all. It is not omitting ALL USFS campgrounds; it is woefully INACCURATE in what it does show. This from an "atlas"?
Second, the new map book has so exaggerated the width of roads and over-emphasized place names that it looks like a cartoon of its former self. It is more difficult to read, and is almost deceptive in its scale of road size to the scale of the actual map. Further, by exaggerating road widths, it now has to sacrifice detail and accuracy anywhere neighborhoods appear, particularly in mountain areas. So, again, it is no longer adequate as my only map source when traveling to those areas.
Third, the "new and not improved" DeLorme has made the blue lines and lettering of stream and lake names even more difficult to read than before (and they were elusive in past editions).Read more ›
The only caveat is that the scale of the maps in this atlas, at 1:160,000, is too large to show great detail. If you're mountain biking or hiking in remote terrain or on minor trails, you should get additional maps, such as smaller-scale governmental maps or those made by Latitude 40.
Would give 5, but the book is awkwardly large - hard to carry along.
