There are many reasons to take on the challenges of the Colorado Trail. Not only is the scenery sublime and the Wild West trail towns a lot of fun, but it’s also a great place to enjoy nature, experience solitude, escape the rat race, and enjoy living in the woods.
 
For those considering longer thru-hikes, like the Appalachian Trail or epic Pacific Crest Trail, the Colorado Trail is a good place to start, as the trail is well maintained, the support services are great, and you can tackle as few or many of its segments as you want to get a taste of what a multiday hike is all about.
