Official App of the Continental Divide Trail Coalition
Download our guide to access the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) map, tracks, waypoints, and comments! Considered by many to be the most remote and challenging of the Triple Crown trails. The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail is a 3000+ mile adventure from Mexico to Canada. The trail travels through five western states. It passes through many ecosystems, 25 National Forests, 21 Wilderness Areas, 3 National Parks, and 1 National Monument. The CDT offers an incredible experience to all who visit, including thru-hikers, section-hikers, and day-hikers. Our data for the CDT guide was collected in partnership with Bear Creek Survey Service, LLC. The date is updated by the Continental Divide Trail Coalition.
