From the publisher:
In 2012, the 83-mile Collegiate West route was added to The Colorado Trail as an alternate route to the Collegiate East section, creating the approximately 163-mile Collegiate Loop. The Collegiate Loop topographic map guide starts at the top end of the loop near Twin Lakes Reservoir.

The trail tracks south along the eastern slope of Sawatch Range under the watchful gaze of several 14ers (fourteen-thousand foot peaks) until it joins the Continental Divide Trail near Monarch. The trail then turns north along the west side of the Sawatch Range as it crisscrosses the continental divide until finally finishing the loop back at Twin Lakes Reservoir.
