Colorado Trail: Southern Terminus Trailhead to Quinn Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Welcome to the southern terminus of the Colorado Trail! This 5.4-mile out-andback section of the trail will give all the thru-hike dreamers a small taste of what the trail has to offer. The trail travels along Junction Creek and offers numerous areas to enjoy the nice cool mountain runoff during the warm mountain summer days.

The Colorado Trail is an idea that was conceived back in 1973 by Bill Lucas and Merrill Hastings. Since that time the trail has become an established, marked, and mostly non-motorized trail open to hikers, horse riders, and bicyclists. From Waterton Canyon near Denver, the trail makes its way for almost 500 miles from the Front Range over the Rockies, through the state’s most mountainous regions, to the outskirts of Durango. Thru-hikers taking on the entire trail will pass through eight mountain ranges, six national forests, and six wilderness areas."
