GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) -- The 486-mile Colorado Trail between Denver and Durango is adding 80 miles of trail through the Collegiate Peaks, which is home to a dozen mountains topping 14,000 feet.
The Colorado Trail Foundation says the Collegiate West route offers Colorado Trail users a western alternative to an existing 80-mile stretch of trail on the eastern side of the Collegiate Peaks south of Leadville.
The new section also is part of the 3,000-mile Continental Divide National Scenic Trail that runs from Canada to Mexico.
