Colorado Trail Map

Mt. Princeton Hot Springs

We left our campsite and the views of the mountains to begin a long road walk around the sides of Mt. Princeton. It is almost 6 miles of mountain and paved roads to the resort. We stopped at the Country Store at Mt Princeton for snacks and lunch. We spent the time visiting with a young couple doing a thru hike. We had sent our last resupply box here but as we have only 20 miles left and still had enough supplies we sent this box home. The trail leaving the resort is another 2 miles of pavement. As we walked on this road there was a small valley alongside a wetlands with cabins and houses, based on all the dry surrounding it was so out of place.. As we returned to the trail there was a 1,000' climb to the top of a ridge before a long traverse and another 800' to our campsite at Brown's Creek. We have now completed Segment 13 and started Segment 14. There have been great vistas on the climb of Mt Princeton and other mountains.
