Colorado Trail: The Official Guidebook (Colorado Mountain Club Guidebooks)

Manufacturer: Mountaineers Books

Editorial Reviews
Completely revised guide to the extraordinary Colorado Trail that stretches 468 miles from Denver to Durango • The only guide available for thru-hikers, day hikers, mountain bikers, trail runners, XC skiers, and equestrians. • 90 color pictures, 28 segment maps, elevation profiles, integrated GPS waypoints, town maps and Mountain bike detours of Wilderness Areas • 35,000 copies sold The Colorado Trail (CT) is the premier scenic long trail in North America. It winds its way through endless fields of wildflowers to windy 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 5500 feet and ending near Durango at 7000 feet, the CT gains and loses almost 76,000 feet in elevation over 468 miles.

This seventh 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 complete rewrites of the 28-segment trail descriptions and the addition of integrated GPS waypoints.

Each segment has distance, elevation gain, an overview of the segment; a list of trailhead and access points; maps needed; a list of supply points; services and accommodations; detailed trail description; 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, cycling, 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.
