Favorite thing: Stretching from Denver to Durango, The Colorado Trail fulfills the dreams one would expect of a high mountain educational and recreational hiking trail which connects 500 miles of Colorado's magnificent mountainsides. It is high and mighty and it is diverse, therefore demanding, because of its tremendous changes in elevation and the expanse of area it covers. It crosses eight mountain ranges, seven national forests, six wilderness areas and five river systems. The trail winds from wild, rugged terrain to serene and pristine settings. The Colorado Trail meanders through some of the most beautiful terrain in the state.
