I've had this book for a long time and just refreshed it to get the spriral bound version. I was new to off-roading 6+ years ago when I went out to visit a friend in Colorado for the first time after purchasing a truck with 4x4 and skid plates. The book has been immensely helpful for a novice like me, who is willing to take his stock truck on some moderate adventures. I skip the advanced/difficult stuff, so no idea how well those are documented. For what I need, it's perfect. Easy to read and very well documented.

I'm a total off-road rookie and recently purchased a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR BOTH ROOKIES AND EXPERTS! It shows many trails and rates them easy/moderate/difficult. I've been slowly working my way through each level of trails. Great maps, excellent descriptions of how to get to each location and detailed trail mileage. Great book for anybody in Boulder/Longmont/Loveland/Ft Collins area.

This is a great make over of an old standby. The descriptions and distance way points are spot on. As we drove one trail the detail was so accurate I could almost shut my eyes and let my wife read from the book to guide us. The new color and 3-d mapping really adds to the value of information given. My only complaint was that I didn't have enough time (or a vehicle capable enough) to do all the trails. If you are going to ride trails in Colorado you NEED the "Back Roads Books".

These books by Charles Wells are great books. They have been the key to many a four-wheel drive adventure for me and my family from Ft. Collins to the high mountains of Durango to the red rocks of Moab. I've even given some for Christmas gifts.

The inclusion of gps coordinates very helpful. Many good, heart pounding pictures. The fact that the author has done the trails in his own jeep a huge plus.

However, in this edition, they've tried too hard. Each trail only gets two pages whether it needs more or not. They've included a separate 3D mapping which has a rolling north orientation. The fonts get way too small. And though the photos are excellent it takes a magnigying glass to see them.

The coil binding uses too small a ring and catches the pages constantly and is impossible to fold back.

Great book, very useful, fun, motivational, but not quite five stars. (The old Moab book I would give 5 stars. Bigger binding, larger fonts and format, favorite trails list.)

If you are headed into the back country for some offroading this resource is invaluable. Good write ups a d very good and detailed maps. This book plus a GPS and you can find the trails, sights, and your way back to the trailhead.

I have lived in Colorado my whole life and this book is still really helpful.The trail descriptions are really accurate and the vehicle recomendations are dead on.
They use gps coordinates for the start points and other spots on each trail. If you have a Garmin you can plug them in and drive right to the trail.
Very informative descriptions of trails and what to expect.

These are the only books to buy for trail advice and locations... only issue is with only 3 categories, (easy, intermediate, difficult) it's hard to judge without talking to others who have run the trail, what is REALLY difficult, and what is just difficult for a stock rig. I have a 99 Tacoma with 33' tires and a locker and many of the difficult trails I walk through... yet some need lockers front/rear and 35+ tires.

These books are all great! I love the detail and the guidance. I used these with my very avid 4 wheeler boyfriend and he thought they were great as well. It contains maps, which help since many of these trails are hidden, a difficulty rating on each trail, and a verbal detail of the trail, as well as any sights to see to the final destination, either turn around and go back or loop around. It was the perfect gift for a 4 wheeler guru.
