Maps of colorado

Do you know where I can get good hunting maps of colorado. I would really like some maps that show roads/trails/streams/lakes/etc. or even a good topo maps. Not sure if they sell maps on certain regions that cover a large portion or if there just of small areas. Thanks for any help.

Welcome to BGH Joe!

You should be able to get maps for specific areas at any sporting goods store. They're often times printed out as needed. Just need to know what areas you want before you go in to buy them.

Most of the sporting goods stores around here seem to have a very limited selection of really good, usable maps. You might want to give the US Geological Survey (at the Fed Ctr @ 6th & Kipling). They have every map or every known area within the United States. This is where we get all of our topos and BLM maps. Good luck

white river

If you plan on hunting the White River National Forest there is a map that covers that area put out by the Forest Service. I find it handy because the FS roads are usually numbered correctly and match what's on the map. I would take a topo over the WRNF map but it's a nice tool to have in addition to the topo.

I found a really awesome website to get all the maps that you need. http://www.mytopo.com is just awesome. You can custom design the map just the way you want it. You go on there and pick out the area that you want the map of and choose a scale and a few other options. You can get topo maps, arial maps and a hybrid. The maps are only like 15 to 20 bucks laminated and ready to go. I would really reccomend them.

Boobzilla is right. If you have access to the USGS that is mecca to maps. On the other hand, I would start with the blm 1:100,000 editions then move to the 1:24,000 as necessary in the areas that you want to concentrate on.

The Forest service maps are also nice if there is one available for the area you are going into.

National Geographic also prints a nice series of topos, I have always been able to find them at REI and other climbing/hiking/outdoors stores. There is a large map that shows what # you need for each area, all these maps are on tearproof and waterproof paper.
