Great maps!
Best available at this time other than the USGS topos. More of an overview of the Winds than a route finding map. Like the Trails Illustrated maps, they are tough and hold up well to repeated use. A little big (6.5"x9" when folded) and heavy for the trail, but great for planning a trip. As always with maps that cover such a large area, detail is limited. Note that only a portion of the Wind River Roadless Area is covered by these maps.
Still, if you're going into the Wind Rivers, you need to check them out!
