Pros: Only one readily available.

Cons: Some odd choices for a short book, go to a local shop in Gunny for some better recommendations.

Recommendation: Seems to be a cut and paste from Laura Guccione's guide which is hard to find these days. Nothing original here.

Pros: Lots of ride options. Good coverage of the area. Expands out beyond the usual rides.

Cons: Needs elevation profiles--topos are good, but they don't give enough indication of vertical relief.

Recommendation: Super guidebook by someone who obviously knows the area.

Pros: Beautiful full color photos of popular trails, detailed topographic maps, complete coverage of the CB/Gunnison/Salida area trails.

Cons: Too many trails to choose from! Honestly though, it would be nice to know which trails are "must rides" and which ones are for the locals.

Recommendation: One of the most detailed mountain bike guides you will find. While the Falcon Guides usually send you off with a simple drawn map, Holly's Ride Guides provide you with trail maps overlaid on a real topo map so you can get a feel for the terrain. Awe inspiring color photos make you want to get out and ride!
