Colorado Trail Resources by Segment

The Trail Resources by Segment information below is not intended to be a complete list of resources, however, it will be a useful place to start planning your trip and to check for recently updated information. For detailed information, purchase an Official CT Guide through our online CT Store.

The Colorado Trail is divided into 33 segments which includes a choice of two routes in the middle, Collegiate East and Collegiate West. Unusual or abnormal trail conditions brought to the attention of The Colorado Trail Foundation by users will be posted as received. Persons planning Colorado Trail hikes can also check with the appropriate U S Forest Service District Ranger Office (listed below for each segment) for trail conditions.

If you plan on using any Accommodations listed, please contact them directly to ensure that their services will meet your individual needs.
