I'll put something together tonight. It won't be as nice as some of the maps as I don't have google earth and my laptop is too damn old to run that program.

edit: just saw there's a web based version. I'll get one together. Might be a day or two though.

well...this is the best I can do for now...here's the alpine loop just using regular google maps. The gap in the trail is a trail that isn't on google maps. It's called corkscrew gulch and can be found on traildamage.com

There's also several mining ghost towns along that route. Those are always fun to get out and explore.

Animas Forks is a popular camp spot. Right by the river, too.

Not very. That mapped route typically starts in Lake City, CO (far right side) and goes counter clockwise. About halfway across the map where it takes a sharp turn to go south, that's Animas Forks. There's also another cool mine (heard of but I haven't visited) called Treasure Mountain mine and it's also in that area.

If you wanted to camp there, I would start in Ouray rather than Lake City and go counter clockwise from there. That would also seperate the easier part of the loop from the harder part of the loop. You would do Mineral Creek, Engineer Pass, and Cinnamon Pass in one day, then do Corkscrew Gulch, Black Bear Pass, and Imogene Pass the next. That way, if you've got a stock rig, they could wheel day 1 and ride along on day 2 if they didn't want to drive Black Bear Pass.

Edit: I also just realized that Ouray would be a much easier (faster) starting point for you guys coming from the north to get to.

Very nice. Sounds like starting in Ouray is the way to go.

Wouldn't going counter clock wise tho from there mean you would do Imogene and Blackbeard first??

Honestly, it will all probably come down to who is going on what leg an what leg has the most people, because that's what these trips are all about, wheeling abd bsing with everyone
