First of all, Kokopelli (Fruita to Moab) is obviously a long trail 142 miles, so breaking it down is critical. To that end, the detailed descriptions of the various approaches in the Trip Planning chapter help those who want to do it on their own or those who will have support. And it's not a bike only book....it is helpful to motorcycle or 4x4 drivers too.
The trail is broken down into 9 sections, each with detail descriptions of the section, a color map with great detail (some of the unique icons include water, steep climb, ghost town), elevation, mileage, I70 exits and 128 (really useful for the support team).
I'll try to list all the things that make this trail book unique and/or useful to me:
-spiral bound (more practical on the trail compared to bound books or big maps)
-water considerations (eg. Onion Creek is polluted with arsenic)
-the planning guide and various models (mapping your experience level to how many days riding the whole trail will take; supported/unsupported; commercial trip).
-nice descriptions of the campgrounds in the area along with the towns of Moab and Fruita
-finally, the history and trivia are great
While there aren't many trails like Kokopelli, I hope Rad authors more trail books...I'm in!
