The 9th Edition CT Guidebook includes…
This guide follows the format established in earlier editions. Each segment chapter provides general information about the segment; trailhead access directions; information about supplies, services and accommodations along the route; a detailed trail description, including stream crossings, water sources and camping spots; and a map, elevation profile and GPS coordinates for numerous points along the Trail.
You’ll find resupply information, equipment checklists, and food and safety recommendations.
Guidebook Serves At-Home Support People – The Guidebook will help you plan your trip. Beyond that, consider this question. Does your sphere include one or more at-home/support folk(s)? To be of assistance to you, they will need one of the CT guides and this CT Guidebook works best for them, with its maps, roads, towns, post office info and much more. Trail travelers often gain Guidebook value by leaving it with their at-home loved one(s).
There are introductory sections on the heritage, natural history and geology of the CT as well as planning guide for traveling the trail. Also included are new full-color photographs that provide a virtual tour of the trail.
To assist cyclists, this new book includes a description and map of each bicycle detour around the Wilderness areas.
Carried over from previous editions are “Gudy’s Tips;” short bits of advice for each segment by Gudy Gaskill, the “Mother of The Colorado Trail.”

Who Built The Trail?
Did you know the Colorado Trail Foundation has been organizing the improvement and maintenance of the Colorado Trail since the CT was first connected end-to-end in 1987? Volunteers are the life-blood of the organization. Without them, there would be no Trail.
