Continental Divide Trail Fires - 2024

These are the most recent Continental Divide Trail fires, CDT fire perimeters, hotspots and surface CDT smoke information.

The table below shows fires near the CDT. Fires on trail or within a mile of the trail will show red text. If a fire perimeter intersects the trail the table will show start/end trail mile, first encounter to last encounter, the entire segment is not necessarily burned.

View google maps of National & CDT Smoke, National & CDT Fires/Perimeters or both layers together. Fires/Perimeters are updated every 4 hours, surface smoke is updated hourly. A Fire weather map showing red flag warnings, fire weather watches, etc, is also available. A 4 hour heat map of Air Quality Index is also available.

Surface smoke data and fire weather is from NOAA, fires/perimeters are from National Interagency Fire Center and hot spots are from NASA.
