Download our guide to access the Colorado Trail map, tracks, waypoints, and comments! The Colorado Trail is a challenging and rewarding hike of 485 miles (780 km) that stretches from Denver to Durango, passing through six National Forests and six wilderness areas on its way. Thru-hikers will traverse eight mountain ranges, including the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and climb to over 13000 feet (3900 meters) during their journey. The trail is also perfect for day-hikers and mountain bikers. Our data for The Colorado Trail guide was collected in partnership with Bear Creek Survey Service, LLC.
