More than just a map, National Geographic Trails Illustrated topographic maps are designed to take you into the wilderness and back. Printed on tear-resistant, waterproof material, this map can go anywhere you do.
National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated map of Uncompahgre Plateau North is created for outdoor enthusiasts exploring the year-round recreational opportunities in this unique area in southwestern Colorado. Expertly researched and created in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and others, the map provides unparalleled detail of northern Uncompahgre National Forest, Dominguez Escalante National Conservation Area, Dominguez Canyons Wilderness, Tabeguache and Roubideau Areas, Grand Mesa National Forest, Gunnison River, Unaweep-Tabeguache Scenic and Historic Byway and Tabeguache Trail.
Use the mapped trails, OHV routes and Forest Service roads to get off the beaten path and back on again while exploring the area’s mesa and canyons. Trails are labeled according to their designated usage, whether exploring on foot, skis, horseback, mountain bike, motorcycle or ATV, including rock crawling trails. Seasonal roads and trails are labeled with their accessible dates. To aid in your navigation of the area, the map displays contour lines, elevations, labeled peaks and summits, water features, selected waypoints and clear color-coded boundaries between different land management agencies. Recreation activities pinpointed include areas for camping, fishing, swimming, water skiing and wildlife viewing.
Every Trails Illustrated map is printed on “Backcountry Tough” waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation.
