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.

They 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.



These will also be doggy hikes for

well behaved, friendly but tough mountain mutts

able to handle the distance and elevation gain/loss.



This hike will do Segment 2 as described in

The CMC Guidebook, The Colorado Trail, 8th Edition.

It goes from Co Rd 97 to Co Rd126 & FS Rd 550.

Car pool from Denver to the West end TH at Co Rd 126 & FS Rd 550.

Drop a car(s) there and take CO Rds 126, 96 & 97 back to

the East end TH on Co Rd 97.

Hike to the West end and drive back to the East end.

Stop to eat on the way home, time permitting.
