How do you plot courses with out and back overlapping sections?

I have been editing a copy of a race's Caltopo map and there is a long section that is out and back over the same trail. When I print this map I wanted to be able to see the out and the back separately. I've tried having some lines being skinny and some lines fat, but I wonder if there's a better way. Can the lines know to move over slightly and sit side-by-side?

Here's the map I'm working on:

    Hi there,
    I'm guessing your best bet would be to use two different colors, and maybe have one line larger, and one smaller. There isn't a specific way to have them overlap unfortunately. I think being creative with your colors and line styles will be your best bet.
