This book is your official guide to hiking, backpacking, horsepacking and bicycling one of the nation's most beautiful and varied long-distance trails. Written for both through-hikers of the entire 468-mile Colorado Trail and segment-hikers doing a section at a time, this guide has everything you need: expert advice on planning your CT experience, detailed descriptions of every mile, resupply information at nearby towns, equipment recommendations, food and safety considerations, wilderness etiquette, natural history, and much more. Full-color maps, a detailed index, dozens of gorgeous full-color photographs, and must-have elevation profiles make this the most complete and accurate book available on the Colorado Trail. There's even fascinating info on side trips, like 14ers, to visit along the way. This new sixth edition has all the latest CT re-routes. And now this new edition is "GPS Enabled" with over 800 accurate GPS positions so you can use the latest navigational aides.
