www.latitude40maps.com, is the maker of the maps.

Hope this helps.
May I add, the National Geographic Trails Illustrated #501 and 502 would be good additions to your collection and contain most of the Utah segments of the trail.

Delorme's, Utah and Colorado Gazetteer are great for big picture and most if not all of the route is depicted but not labeled.

Also, Late model Toyota navigation has most of the trail route indicated pretty accurately

Feel free to stop in for a beer on your way to the trailhead!

Does anyone see any reason that the Kokopelli Trail can't be run from Moab to Colorado?
Even Rose Garden Hill is a Traildamage 3-4 http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=128 and from what I hear, that is the hardest part of the trail. True?

Someone also mentioned that there is a lot of brush (causing scratches on rigs) in a couple of areas. Is this true?

You could run it from Moab, it is not a directional trail.

No brush really, unless you forgot your map and tried to navigate the single track section in your rig, which will not only get you mega pin stripes but also get you stuck...I hate that I have first hand knowledge of this..

Thanks for the info.
I'm trying to accommodate 8 peoples schedules and was thinking about starting in Moab. I'm going to keep it from Fruita to Moab. It gives a better feel knowing that we're heading to Moab. A real destination.

I think that is a good call. It is really a great route into Moab.
