If you have ever had the sound and exhaust of a snowmobile interrupt your cross-country skiing or snow-shoeing, this is the guidebook for you. Veteran author Dave Muller has described in detail 99 Colorado trails where snowmobiles are forbidden by state or federal regulation or where the terrain makes snowmobiling simply not worth the effort. These are easy and more difficult routes to be enjoyed and savored in silence by the cross-country skier and snowshoer alike. On these trails, the only sounds you will hear will come from your equipment moving through the snow, the pound of your heartbeat, and the rasp of your breath at altitude. Complete information on the route including distance, time needed, elevation, difficulty level and map references, Color photos and maps throughout, "Getting There" instructions to the trailhead, "Comment" on the route and the location, "The Tour" with precise directions for the route, "Sidebars" on subjects of interest or not.
