Best Hiking Maps for Colorado 14ers
There are many great maps, but we find these two are the most common and include accurate and detailed information for hikers.
National Geographic’s Map Pack
This pack is fantastic for the most common routes up 14ers, but does lack details for many alternate routes. If you are looking for the standard route for all 14ers on a simply designed map, this is a fantastic option.
The Best 14er Guide Book
Based on reviews and our experience, this is the most comprehensive 14er book:
While you can get most of this information from online sources like 14ers.com, this is a great hand held version for various routes up all the 14ers.
How Should You Be Mapping Your 14er Hikes?
We highly recommend utilizing a tool like Gaia for free that allows you to map out your route, know exact mileage, elevation gain, and even track your progress on your phone. Everyone should be using a tool like this before your hike to know the area you’ll be traveling in. You’ll be able to map out the best route for what you are looking to accomplish, and save it for use later.
Other frequently used mobile apps include: OnXBackcountry, the 14ers.com app, and FatMap.
