Detailed maps depicting the Hidden Gems Wilderness Proposal for Eagle and Summit counties are available to the public at local libraries and the Colorado Mountain College Campus in Edwards.

The package of large-sized maps include the overview of the entire proposal, and close-up depictions of the individual proposal areas.

The maps were printed and distributed by the Hidden Gems Wilderness Campaign as part of its public outreach. There are comment sheets and information sheets about the proposal and wilderness available with the maps as well.
