Colorado Trail 2020

The Colorado Trail (CT) begins near Denver in Waterton Canyon State Park. It travels 485 miles (780km) south-westward through the Rocky Mountains, crossing the Kenosha Range, Front Range, Tenmile Range, Collegiates, and San Juan Range. The Trail passes through six National Forests, six Wilderness areas, and traverses five major river systems, before it ends at Durango CO. The trail was completed in 1987, and was built for hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians. The hiking season is generally very short, as most of the trail is above 10,000ft elevation, with the highest point at 13,271ft/4045m.
