  • Colorado Trail Databook, 8th Edition

    $14.95

    Pocket-sized including water sources and reliability, the CT Databook is the “CliffsNotes” version of the CT Guidebook. Users like carrying it and referring to it on the Trail.

    Databook 8 is New for the 2021 Trail Season, it is lighter and thinner than the waterproof 7th Edition. The 8th Edition of the CT Databook builds on the usefulness of previous editions beginning with an end-to-end refinement of the Trail survey data, leading to mileage changes throughout the Databook. Key features have been corrected, particularly those that pertain to intersections and water sources, and the book has been revised to include all Trail reroutes. Resupply towns information has been rewritten and made current.

    The Databook answers your questions, including: How far is the next water source and how reliable is it? How many miles? What elevation? Where can I resupply? Information is presented in an easy-to-understand system of key words, symbols, maps and elevation profiles for each of the Trail segments. CT travelers appreciate using it as they travel the Trail.

  • Custom CT Logo Belt

    $48.95

    Handsome metal buckle with engraved, Colorado Trail logo. Instantly recognizable by CT enthusiasts. The buckle is a beautifully finished, deep silver color and the engraved logo shows in what we call “mountain storm white-out.”

    The stealth-black layered nylon strap is ultra durable and wears very comfortably. The 40mm size fits belt loops easily. (40mm is just over 1-1/2 inches.) The length handles waist sizes up to 42-inch and, for smaller sizes, is easy to cut to length.

    No holes. The belt and buckle utilize a track system that adjusts in increments of 1/4-inch, a much finer adjustment than belts with holes, making it easy to get just right.

    Made by Mission Belt exclusively for The Colorado Trail Foundation and Colorado Trail enthusiasts.
