Experience the high country of Colorado―from Rocky Mountain National Park to the Weminuche Wilderness―on the Continental Divide trail, a 3100-mile trail that traverses the Rocky Mountains from Mexico to Canada. Hike some of the more popular and accessible sections of the trail near Denver and Summit County, then venture out on an overnight trek across some of the most remote areas of the state. The Continental Divide Trail runs approximately 800 miles through Colorado, taking hikers through groves of golden aspens, along the shores of snowmelt-fed lakes, and to the rocky summits of 13,000-foot peaks with expansive vistas.
