The Longest Bike Path In The Region Is Here In Colorado And It’s An Unforgettable Adventure
If you love to hike, bike, or be outside, you already know there is no better place than Colorado, thanks to our beautiful landscapes and easy access to world-class recreation. That said, it’s no surprise that Colorado is also home to one of the longest bike paths in the region via the Colorado Trail. It’s definitely one of the best bike trails in Colorado.
Billed as a premiere backcountry trail, the Colorado Trail is a continuous 567-mile path from Denver to Durango.
Whether you bike, hike, walk, or horseback ride, you are guaranteed an unforgettable adventure as it passes through 6 wildlife areas, 6 National Forests, 8 mountain ranges, and 5 major river systems.
In addition to what you can see and do on the path, the Colorado Trail is unique in that it was developed (and still maintained) by thousands of volunteers!
Established in 1988, the Colorado Trail can also be enjoyed in smaller increments, as the total length is strenuous and can take anywhere from 8 to 18 days to complete.
There are 28 segments along the Trail, each with its own access point.
Please note: The Colorado Trail is open year-round, but it is best to use from late spring through fall before (and after) inclement weather arrives.
Can you see why the Colorado Trail is considered one of the best in the country?
