The ninth edition of The Colorado Trail has all the information a day hiker, thru-hiker, mountain biker, or equestrian needs to plan and complete a trip on The Colorado Trail. New to this edition are five chapters on the 80-mile Collegiate West trail addition. Maps and written descriptions for all 28 segments of The Colorado Trail have also been updated throughout the guide. 

Each chapter provides essential logistical information for the Colorado Trail: trailhead directions; road access points; detailed trail descriptions including distance and elevation gain; color maps and elevation profiles; and information on water sources, campsite locations, and resupply towns. Additional town maps and mountian bike detour maps (around Wilderness Areas) have been included throughout the book.

An extensive introduction includes information on planning, supplying, safety, equipment, navigation, mountain biking, horseback riding, regulations, and backcountry ethics—plus chapters on the heritage of The Colorado Trail, natural history, and geology.
