Colorado Trail (Segment 5) Professional Review and Guide

"This segment of the Colorado Trail is on the east side of Highway 285. The entire Colorado Trail can be used for an out-and-back outing of any length up to 30 miles or a one-way car shuttle of around 15 miles. The trail features sweeping views of South Park, and the Mosquito Range as it rolls gently through some thick aspen glens—great for viewing fall or summer colors."
