After a month on the bicycles and almost 1,000 road miles, we decided to change it up and head into the wilderness, away from traffic and roads.
The Colorado Trail runs from Denver to Durango, a distance of 500 miles.
If you read our last blog post, you’ll have seen that we decided to head up to Denver after biking to Gunnison and get started on the hike in the traditional southbound direction, from Waterton Canyon.
Purchased the data book, which provides information on the terrain, mileage, water sources etc.
Overall, these first few days on the trail were great… No problem with finding campsites or water; met quite a few people along the way; saw deer, pronghorn moose and a bear; and saw some amazing Colorado scenery.
Join us next time on this blog, as we continue our hike on the Colorado Trail, pass the 100 mile mark, deal with blisters and stay in a great Airbnb in Dillon for a couple of nights off the trail.
