Colorado Trail – Overview

The Colorado Trail is one of my favorite “shorter” long trails. The trail travels from Denver, CO to Durango, CO traveling up over 12,000 feet and through some of the most spectacular alpine scenery in this country.

Traversing ranges like the Rockies and the San Juan mountains, this is a very remote and rugged wilderness that frequently brings you close to resupply towns where you can pause to regroup and resupply where needed. The towns make this hike a spectacular adventure with their western cultures and old mining history.
