The Rainbow Trail is a long distance trail of at least 100 miles in length. The northern terminus is at the Silver Creek trail outside of Salida, Colorado, with the southern terminus near Westcliffe, Colorado.
The entirety of the rainbow trail is opened to motorized ORV traffic, with many sections of the trail open to both motorcycles and ATVs. However, there are quite a few sections that aren't open to ATVs.
Mountain biking and hiking are allowed along the entire length of the trail, but due to the motorized traffic, some sections of the trail are more desirable than others. In general, the sections that are closed to ATVs tend to be quality singletrack that are awesome for hiking! However, the sections that are open to ATVs can be wide, doubletrack, and very rocky and washed out.
