Wolf Creek Pass to Sawtooth Mountain-CDT Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"If you love being up high, then the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) is for you. There are stunning views, mountain lakes, wildlife, and wildflowers. You may not camp—or picket, hobble, tether, or graze pack or riding stock—within 200 feet of Archuleta Lake. Campfires are also prohibited. Watch for late-afternoon thunderstorms. Snow can be deep in places into July.
From Wolf Creek Pass, CDT 813 begins on the north side of US 160. A trail marker shows the way, and you may also see remains of a series of small wooden steps. You’ll quickly move into the trees; switchbacks help make the moderate-to-steep climb a little easier to bear."
