The Mountaineers The Colorado Trail

  • Author: Colorado Trail Foundation
  • ISBN: 9780984221332
  • The Colorado Trail (CT) is the premier scenic long trail in North America
  • It winds its way through endless fields of wildflowers to wind-swept mountain passes, from wild mountain rivers and streams to quiet trails through old growth forests
  • The CT crosses eight mountain ranges, seven National Forests, six Wilderness Areas, and five river systems
  • Starting near Denver at 5,500 feet and ending near Durango at 7,000 feet, the CT gains and loses almost 76,000 feet in elevation over 468 miles
  • This eighth edition of the official CT guide has all the information a thru-hiker needs to plan and complete his or her trek
  • New to this edition are updated GPS waypoints, maps, and rewritten descriptions for the 28 segments, as well as new photographs of spots along the segments
  • Each segment provides distance, elevation gain, and an overview; a list of trailhead and access points; maps needed; a list of supply points; services and accommodations; detailed trail descriptions; a map; and an elevation gain and loss chart
  • Additional town maps and mountain bike detour maps (around Wilderness Areas) have been added where applicable
  • An extensive introduction includes information on planning, supplying, safety, mountain biking, regulations, and backcountry ethics--plus chapters on Colorado Trail heritage, natural history, and geology
  • At the back of the book you will find a graphic summary of the trail, equipment list, ranger districts with contact information, bibliography, and index.
