Colorado Trails

Colorado, known for its high peaks and colorful landscape, is home to diverse terrain including mountains, forests, high plains, mesas, canyons, plateaus, rivers, and desert. Hiking in Colorado runs the gamut between dayhikes and epic-length backpacking trips

Mount Elbert (14,433 feet) is the highest peak in the state, and is one of 54 peaks above 14,000 feet, which many call “Fourteeners,” all of which are popular destinations for hiking in Colorado

Backpackers often flock to the Continental Divide Trail, one of America’s long trails, that runs 3,100 miles from Canada to Mexico.

Colorado is home to Rocky Mountain and Great Sand Dunes national parks. In Rocky Mountain, Front Range peaks dot the landscape in every direction, with 14,000-foot Long’s Peak towering over them all, while Great Sand Dunes sits at the base of the snowcapped Sangre de Cristo Range.
