10-12 day Colorado Suggestions? on 05/29/2009 20:53:41 MDT Print View

My wife and I would like to do a 10-12 day hike in colorado, but I've become overloaded with all the possibilities. My first thought was a section of the CT, but the logistics of car shuttles, resupply, etc got a little daunting. We usually hike 10-15 miles a day, so I was thinking around 100-130 miles. It would be cool to have a couple of towns along the way to resupply in as well. Are there any decent loops of this length that we could do without having to backtrack? We will be driving out from MN, so central to northern Colorado would save us a day or so of driving each way.

With a distance of only 100-130 miles, you'll be hard pressed to hit any more than one town along the way.

I would check out Rocky Mountain National Park for loops with great scenery and easy access.
