Details

Want to do the CT but don't have the time for

the real-deal through hike?

Come join us for a few sections of the CT as dayhikes from Denver.

This summer I'll be leading a series of day hikes on segments 1-6 of the CT.

These will generally be long, 10-20 mi,

fast paced, on-trail hikes requiring a car shuttle.

Trail shoes recommended.

CMC 10 essentials still required but keep it to a bare minimum.

These will also be exploratory hikes since

the leader had not done the whole route of each hike.

However the routes are well marked and mapped out and

the leader has excellent route finding skills and GPS.



These will also be doggy hikes for

well behaved, friendly but tough mountain mutts

able to handle the distance and elevation gain/loss.

Non-CMC members welcome as guests but must sign a waiver.



This hike will do Segment 1,

as described in The CMC Guidebook, The Colorado Trail, 8th Edition,

but using the alternate Indian Creek TH, ICTH, on Co Rd 67 10.5 mi West of Sedalia.

Segment 1 goes from the ICTH to Co Rd 97 East of Pine Grove and Foxton.

Car pool from Denver through Sedalia, West, past ICTH, on Co Rd 67 and 97 to

the West end of Segment 1.

Drop a car(s) there and return back to

the East end TH at the ICTH.

Hike North, ~4.4 mi, to pick up the main CT at Lenny's Rest, above Waterton Canyon and

then continue West ~9 mi to the West end TH and drive back to ICTH.

Stop to eat on the way home, time permitting.
