The Continental Divide Trail is 3,100 miles long, stretching from Mexico to Canada and roughly following the continental divide. It is a part of the Triple Crown of long distance hiking trails in the US, along with the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail. It is still under construction, so sections of it are constantly changing. The information posted here on Tripleblaze is the most up-to-date available, but these trail descriptions and GPS locations may become obsolete at some point in the future. If you notice any obsolete information, always feel free to post a review with the new info!
Whenever possible, the Google Maps location given for each section of trail will be for the most southern point. All sections are numbered in a south-to-north fashion.
The Colorado section runs for approximately 650 miles from the New Mexico border to the Wyoming border, traveling the high-altitude mountains through the wilds of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
