4WD Adventures: Colorado provides all the information needed to explore Colorado's backcountry with the whole family. This is the most comprehensive and detailed book available for SUV owners wanting to enjoy the most interesting sights and scenery in Colorado.

For those who are just starting to tour off-highway, the book packages all the information they need into one volume. There is a wide range of trails, from easy to moderately challenging. The aim is to introduce readers to off-highway trails that are scenic, historic and safe. All the trails included in the book can be undertaken in a stock sport utility vehicle.

4WD Adventures: Colorado features extremely detailed, step-by-step directions for more than 70 4WD trails. Every trail includes maps, ratings for degree of difficulty and scenic beauty, driving times, distances. Beginners and experienced drivers alike will find the book easy to use. For high-tech gadget lovers, the book includes global positioning satellite (GPS) coordinates to aid in navigation.

The book contains over 150 color photographs plus more than 50 historic photos. It is chock full of interesting, historical facts about the many ghost towns and mining camps that you will pass along the trail. The authors bring Colorado's history to life through their accounts of the exploits of sheriffs and gunslingers like Bat Masterson, Doc Holliday and the Reynolds Gang, the rise of instant mining millionaires like Horace Tabor and Thomas Walsh and the stories of American Indian warriors like Chiefs Ouray and Antero.

There are also dozens of photos and interesting write-ups about the animals and wildflowers you are likely to see.
