Excerpts from reviews of Gem Trek maps in magazines and newspapers:
"These are no ordinary maps. Made of waterproof and tear-resistant paper, they clearly show hiking, cross-country skiing, and mountain biking routes superimposed on superb topographical detail. Included on the back of the maps are detailed descriptions of selected routes showing distances, elevation gains, estimated times to complete the routes and difficulty ratings."
"Gem Trek offers the best maps for Rockies recreationists."
"The maps are of high quaity, great to look at and contain lots of accurate, practical and up-to-date information. I particularly like the mini-guide on the back -- good concise info and well written."
"Cochrane's Gem Trek Publishing has created yet another top-rate map..."
"There are maps, and there are maps, but there aren't many maps like these. Next time you go hiking, biking, skiing or riding in the Rockies, pick up a Gem Trek recreation map first. Topo maps and guide in one, they feature -- along with roads, trails and the usual contour lines and mountain elevations -- points of interest; lodge, hostel and alpine hut locations; front- and backcountry campgrounds; viewpoints; relief shading; photos of flora, fauna and great views; trail tips; emergency numbers and trail descriptions. Best of all, they're printed on waterproof plastic..."
