From the publisher:
In a state known for its trails, The Colorado Trail is Colorado's premier long distance trail. Conceived in 1973 and completed in 1987, the trail runs 486 miles between Denver and Durango, traversing some of the most spectacular scenery in the state.

The Colorado Trail is often started at its north terminus in Waterton Canyon just outside of Denver. When traveling from north to south the trail follows the South Platte River and quickly climbs into the Lost Creek Wilderness. From here the trail crosses into Holy Cross Wilderness near Leadville. The trail then skirts the eastern slope of the Sawatch Range and passes beneath Mount Elbert, the highest mountain in Colorado.

Next comes the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness with its multiple 14ers before finally joining with the Collegiate Loop near Monarch Pass. The Colorado Trail from Monarch to Durango is then picked up on the Colorado Trail South Topographic Map Guide.
