With so many outdoor recreation options, visitors to Winter Park have an enviable problem, where should they start? This map is a combination of a standard trail map on the front with a helpful guide on the back that has a selection of recommended hikes, from the easy 3.2 mile Fraser River Trail to the strenuous Rogers Pass Trail that is almost entirely above tree line. Each selected trail includes a brief description, specs such as elevation gain and length as well as a detailed elevation profile to track your progress up and down the numerous peaks and valleys.
Each Local Trails map includes detailed trail maps at 1 inch = 1/2 mile. At this scale every turn of the trail is clearly visible and when covering steep terrain the contours are clearly visible. In addition to the standard features like trailheads and parking areas the maps also show difficulties for each trail segment so you can tell if the entire trail is moderate or if there is only a single short section of difficult on an otherwise easy trail.
Every Local Trails map is printed on "Backcountry Tough" waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation.
