Colorado Trail Map

Getting Ready to Go!

On the 20th of July I am leaving for Colorado for a solo hike of the 485 mile Colorado Trail. I will be hiking southbound from just outside Denver, CO to Durango, CO. Along the way, I am hoping to summit a handful of the "14'ers" (peaks that are over 14,000 ft.), many of them are less than 5 miles off the Colorado Trail.

Two Heel Drive

The Colorado Trail is Colorado's premier long distance trail. Stretching almost 500 miles from Denver to Durango, it travels through the spectacular Colorado Rocky Mountains amongst peaks with lakes, creeks and diverse ecosystems. Trail users experience six wilderness areas and eight mountain ranges topping out at 13,334 feet. According to the latest figures, The Colorado Trail averages 10347' throughout its length! The Continental Divide Trail and The Colorado Trail share the same treadway for 200+ miles. It takes most hikers 4-6 weeks to hike the trail. Five weeks is a very average pace.
